If you will note in my post, I mentioned that this "statement" was 
extreme, but the message was received and decoded by me in the proper 
perspective and context.

I even noted in my post that most of Maxwell's equations seem to satisfy 
many engineering requirements.

It was the core theoretical model and visualization which I was not too 
sure of.
