So while the Maxwellians (those electrodynamicists who came after Maxwell) were busy exploring the mathematical implications of Maxwell's theory (including Oliver Heaviside who, via vector calculus, reduced the theory to the set of equations seen on Tshirts today), Kelvin busied himself with trying to work out the correct model of the aether demanded by the mathematics.

And this is what Tom Bearden is doing, except he is claiming that his model is NOT something new; it has been around for at least 100 years but we've been too stupid to see it, because we allowed Oliver Heaviside and his vector oversimplification to blind us.

In fact, they are entirely due to the interpretation of a single brilliant man, Oliver Heaviside (6) (7).

With experimental confirmation by Hertz, Maxwell's theory especially as interpreted in a much simpler vector form by Oliver Heaviside and Hertz  became predominant.
