Thinking about it. It may have been Hugh Everett, who first proposed the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics. Incidentally he's also the father of Mark Everett the lead singer of the Eels (and may have also invented the term Mutually Assured Destruction while working at RAND, but that work is still classified).
