Maxwell, James Clerk
Maxwell, James Clerk (1831-1879), British physicist, born in Edinburgh, Scotland, who explained the properties of electromagnetism. Maxwell was the first professor of experimental physics at the University of Cambridge. Expanding on the research of British scientist Michael Faraday, Maxwell demonstrated the mathematical relation between electric and magnetic fields. He also showed that light is made up of electromagnetic waves. The unit of measuring magnetic flux, the maxwell, was named in his honor. Maxwell also developed the kinetic theory of gases, which explains the physical properties and nature of a gas, and he investigated color vision and thermodynamics.
James Clerk Maxwell showed that light – the ultimate symbolic manifestation of divinity – was itself only a certain range of frequencies that happened to stimulate the two photosensitive orbs lodged in the human skull. Certain advanced solutions of his equations also suggested the existence of a parallel cosmos, a mirrored universe where electromagnetic waves move backward in time.

“Nothing is too wonderful to be true.” – James Clerk Maxwell
The spectrum that Maxwell discovered was and continues to be infinite, ubiquitous, instantaneous, and cornucopian. Infinite wave action, not the movement of inert masses, is the foundation of telecosmic physics. It is ushering in an age of boundless bandwidth beyond the dreams of most prophets still confined to the copper cage or hiding behind beachfront barricades. This expanding wavescape is the most fertile frontier of the information economy. In its actions are the essential character of the coming economics of abundance and increasing returns, not scarcity and monopoly.
