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.
