    "Maxwell's electrodynamics proceeds in the same unusual way already analyzed in studying his electrostatics. Under the influence of hypotheses which remain vague and undefined in his mind, Maxwell sketches a theory which he never completes, he does not even bother to remove contradictions from it; then he starts changing this theory, he imposes on it essential modifications which he does not notify to his reader; the latter tries in vain to fix the fugitive and intangible thought of the author; just when he thinks he has got it, even the parts of the doctrine dealing with the best studied phenomena are seen to vanish. And yet this strange and disconcerting method led Maxwell to the electromagnetic theory of light!" (Duhem, 1902).

    And your point would be -- what exactly??

    Maxwell, Lorentz and Einstein wave theories of light are based on a contradiction of the optical ether, composed of matter, and the massless electromagnetic ether. The electromagnetic ether is used because the optical ether, composed of matter does not physically exist (vacuum) but Maxwell's theory is based on Faraday's induction effect that is not luminous. Now, Faraday knows this and in 1935, Faraday describes an induction circuit that includes a spark gap (First, Series) to structurally unify light with induction but the spark gap emits electron yet induction is also not an ionization; consequently, Einstein transforms the coordinate system of Maxwell's equations to justify light propagation in vacuum but Maxwell's equations are derived using Faraday's induction effect that is not luminous, nor is induction an ionization effect; furthermore, altering the coordinate system does not change the fact the wave theory of light is based on an optical ether, composed of matter. Some people think that a time-space (curvature) coordinate system justifies the formation of waves without an ether but a coordinate system requires a structure. The problem is the wave theory is a mechanical theory but light and induction are not mechanical since light and induction are massless. We do not know what is causing the radio induction effect. It certainly is not electromagnetic fields since field vector are associated with matter and that's Duhem's contradiction and the reason gravity waves that have the frequency of sound have been discovered that propagate in vacuum, at 1.8 billion light years away, at less than one second, which is extremely extremely ironic.
