Kircher and Electromagnetic Waves
Athansius Kircher set up a series of magnets, each able to spin freely. When the first was jostled, it set the second one moving and so on down the line, in a wave of magnetic influence. He suggested this might be used as a way to send messages, and proposed that it was how influences from the planets could propagate through the medium between worlds.
