This paper proposes a physical model of electromagnetic fields. The model draws upon the works of James Clerk Maxwell. It is based upon the proposition that the medium of aether that Maxwell believed existed, does in fact exist. This paper posits that aether consists of highly elastic cells that collide with each other. It ties the interaction of aether cell collisions to the transmission of electricity and magnetism.
