James Clerk Maxwell’s equation proves that all forms of electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light: why, then, still we say that light is the fastest thing in the cosmos? :p

The reason we observe light the way we do, is that space and time exist infinitely in perfect symmetry, and observing light at a finite speed creates asymmetry that gives context to finite observation. In other words, without the cosmic speed limit only infiinite beings could exist.

I believe all electromagnetic energy is light, but typically we use the word light to describe the spectrum visible to humans.

The speed of em radiation does not come from a math equation. It comes from the rotation speed of the emitters. All em emitters are constantly rotating at c. Emission is an instant change in direction of a field already at c. The keyword is instant.......that's why the linear V of emitter is NOT impressed on it. Therefore the V of propagation is constant. No space-time needed.

You're right about light not being THE fastest thing in the universe, actually light moves at THE fastest speed possible in our universe.

Isn't that what has caused the uproar about seeing galaxies farther away than 18.8 billion light years away?
Redshift affect explains why we can see galaxies up to roughly 46.8 billion lightyears away if I am not mistaken. Not sure what uproar you are speaking of the observable Universe is 13.8 billion years old (WHICH I WILL REITERATE FOR THE BILLIONTH TIME DOES NOT MEAN WHAT ANY OF YOU THINK IT DOES).
The expansion of the Universe in combination with the relative speed of light in a vacuum defines our relative sphere of observation.

Correction: 46.5 billion lightyears. So I was wrong. Sorry about that. My fundamental point still stands, and I still don't understand your question yet I believe I have answered it.
