Was It Michio Kaku Who Invented String Theory?

I’ve been think often about Michio Kaku often ever since I wrote a transcript of a interview he did, and learned that he may not have come up with string theory himself as he said he did.

While that was in the back of my mind, I was reading something on physics at about 5:30 AM, which I wasn’t reading to learn any more about Michio, but to learn about something else. and was astonished when I came to a certain part, which you might notice:

“The fundamental medium filling all space, if there be such, in my judgment,” writes the author, “be ultimately incompressible, otherwise it would be composed of parts, and we should have t seek for something still more fundamental to fill the interstices.” He then goes on to state that the ether, being incompressible, and an electron being composed simply and solely of ther, it may be compared to a knot on a place of string. The knot differs in no respect from the rest of the string except in its tied-up structure. It is of the same density as the rest, and hyet it is a knot which must be untied to cease being a knot–a process whih as yet we have not learned how to apply an electron.

Guess when this was written.

    Hey did you manage to get an answer for this? And who wrote that by the way? I’m really curious now and also wondering if Michio Kaku is a liar :/

      An answer for what? Oh, I thought this was another article on Michio Kaku’s religious beliefs. Wikipedia probably has the right answer about this, though it’s not trustsworthy with articles about evolution, heliocentrism and the Big Bang.
