**Abstract:**

The Maxwell equations are not causal, says Oleg Jefimenko. In this paper, the causality of the Maxwell equa-tions is explored and explained, and new causal equations formulated, according to Jefimenko’s important work in this area, strongly inspired by Oliver Heaviside’s genius work. The causal equations take into account what is com-monly called ‘relativistic’ velocities, and in fact replace the need for any relativity theory.

Good work and right to the point! Too often standard knowledge on this sounds like a poor idealism. Equs 3 and 4 should be written down with partial derivatives of both fields on the left side of the equations. The same goes for the area of linear vector gravity, i.e. GEM with flow of mass as source of the fields. Also, a step back to Heaviside gives one good common ground for further generalizations.
