Is Maxwell's laws absolutely true?

Is Maxwell’s Laws Absolutely true?
  As a Brooklyn Poly Tech BSEE (summa cum laude) and a Sperry/Unisys Radar Dept. research and development engineer, Maxwell’s laws and the associated electrical theory has always been used with highly accurate results. The question is whether the physical universe is built upon these laws or is the laws only the best fit approximations to physical reality? In the practical magnetic courses, we were taught describing functions. These are best fit solutions to complex problems.
   Thus it appears that the laws of physics are merely describing functions for a best fit solution. Einstein’s special relativity is a describing function. People mistake it for actual reality. Maxwell’s equations lead an unsuspecting person to believe that space itself has certain properties such that a moving charge produces a magnetic field. Is that really true? What is a magnetic field?
   The universe I see is composed of plus dot-waves, minus dot-waves, and bipolar dot-waves. Thus we have charges and balanced bipolar charges which makeup the photons and mass. There is no magnetic sub-particle. Thus the magnetic field is really patterns of moving charges. Since the charge of a dot-wave is 2.755E-61 coulombs, the universe is filled with very tiny electrical charges.
   So a moving electron produces a moving field of charge which spins around the electron in the perpendicular direction. Maxwell’s describing function is excellent but Maxwell’s reality is not true. The problem is that the universe is a physical entity and not a mathematical entity. The mathematicians do great work in producing describing functions. However we must all be aware that the describing functions only are a best fit approximation to the physical reality. Unfortunately students are taught to believe that the universe is some sort of mathematical puzzle instead of a very complex structure of simple dot-waves.
   To make matters worse, it appears to me that the entire universe on this cycle started as a ball of energy surrounded by unlimited nothingness. Thus everything we call the properties of space are really the properties of the gravitational wave and the electromagnetic wave which flowed out of that space. Someday people will realize this but this will take looking at the universe from a physical and not a mathematical perspective.

There are some cases where Maxwell's equations don't seem to fit observations, such as homopolar motor & generator, and Marinov motor & generator.

I am not familiar with them but we live in a universe that is a mixture of linearity and non-linearity. Any set of equations are a best fit approximation to reality. they are applicable to very linear areas of space and various engineering problems. One thing that comes to mind are antenna design. At Sperry we had experts doing antenna design. It is a world by itself. Solving interference problems between wiring is another problem. Thus some of engineering is science while some of engineering is art.
   So people who believe that the universe defined by mathematicians represents reality are mistaken.All we can do is a best fit approximation to reality.

Another limitation of Maxwell's equations is they don't acurately describe electromagnetic phenomena at extremely small scale, eg atomic or molecular level.

I was never really concerned long ago whether Maxwell's equations were perfect. It was just interesting math.Einsteins space time was of more interest to me because it effects how we look at the universe. However once you realize that Einstein's solution is merely a best fit approximation then once you see that it follows that all the laws we have are only best fit approximations to a very complex reality. We are lucky to live in a fairly linear part of space. Otherwise we would be forced to have Fourier series type equations with my probability functions. and could anyone understand things. Thank Goodness for Newton and Bohr and Hubble who could produce models that work quite well to help us understand our universe from where we live. If the average person cannot really understand the solutions, then they really are not good solutions.That is why I prefer Engineering solutions over mathematical solutions.
