J R R Tolkien was a physicist?

I was listening to a description of the “multiverse”, the substrate of reality according current theoretical understanding, and it struck me how similar it is to Tolkien’s description of the universe in terms of the Music of the Ainur.

I’ll let this description by Michio Kaku explain… then go read The Silmarillion by Tolkien and you’ll see some striking similarities.

This is either an amazing coincidence or we need to start collecting Dragon Balls Seeing Stones.
