INTRODUCTION                                                                                                                       This write-up is like a Modern Fairy Tale, except that it is all amazingly true and not just childish fiction.  But let me start by giving a VERY brief summary of the present-day generally accepted theory of ‘Magnetism’ as I see it, , , , , , In a nutshell,  when a piece of steel is ‘Magnetized’, all the atoms say  “Aye Aye Sir” spring to attention, and all face one way, thus creating North and South Poles by virtue of the North and South Poles of the individual atoms now forming a strong  concentration. In a hardened steel magnet this is permanent, hence the name “Permanent Magnet” which is the basis of the Bar Magnet and such like..

It may surprise you, that as far back as 150 years ago,  a certain gentleman by the name of Mr. Ampere proposed , and I quote: “Magnetism is caused by  tiny Electric Currents circulating within molecules of Magnetic Material”… He called these “Amperian  Magnetic Electrical Currents” (or something like that).  But he was ridiculed by all his fellow Scientists for such an outrageous suggestion.

A  MODERN  FAIRY TALE !!                                                                                                   Now here comes the Modern Fairy Tale bit, , , , , Fairly recently a HOWARD JOHNSON and a STEVE DAVIS were working late one night with Gauss Meters, and a Computer attempting to map Magnetic Fields when the Computer Screen suddenly displayed a DOUBLE  VORTEX, , ,  ONE INSIDE THE OTHER  WITH OPPOSITE SPINS !!  Over the next few months they  searched Scientific Journals and Libraries and so on,: to see if anyone else had anything to say about this, but results showed , as Howard put it  ”A Great Desert in this area, , , This field has been totally ignored”.  . Their findings were published in the Scientific Journal  “National Laboratory” complete with pictures, but this was met with A  THUNDEROUS  SILENCE !!!

For the ‘Technically Minded’, , , ,  they state that there are three kinds of ‘Amperian Currents’, namely:-

1:  A Double Vortex with opposite spins along side one another.

2:  A Double Vortex with one Vortex inside the other

3:  A FLAT Vortex (Whatever that is!!).


AN  AMAZING  DISCOVERY !!                                                                                                However,   Howard and Steve went a lot  further than this in clarifying their findings by producing Topographical Three Dimensional Models from their Computerized Digital Images. When they did this, they were astonished to see that they clearly displayed A TINY BIT  OF  THE OPPOSITE MAGNETIC POLE  IN ONE CORNER OF A BAR MAGNET !!!  In other words, the North Pole of a Bar Magnet has little bit of South Pole tucked away in one corner and the South Pole, similarly,  has a little bit of North Pole tucked away in one corner (I bet very few people, even  our most  ‘Learned Scientists’ know of this amazing fact!!).


FARADAY  IS “OFF THE HOOK” !!                                                                                However, Howard  says that Faraday was quite correct, but unfortunately misled by his experiment with  Iron Filings on a Card and a Bar Magnet underneath in order to produce a pattern in the Iron Filings  , , , and so will you be too, if you do the same experiment.  This is because you are both doing the experiment IN ONE SINGLE PLANE ONLY (My Comment, , , Just like LOOKING AT ONLY ONE SLICE of a C.A.T. Scan !!).  

 Howard and Steve have now been able to capture the WHOLE PICTURE of what the COMPLETE  MAGNETIC FIELD IS TRULY LIKE IN THREE DIMENSIONAL SPACE !!!

How our understanding of Magnetism would have been today if Faraday had had the facilities to also capture the true three dimensional picture of what is actually happening.


 PROVING  ALL THIS BY A  PRACTICAL  EXPERIMENT                              However,   Howard  and Steve went even further than this , , , They argued that if all this is REALLY  TRUE,  then we MUST surely be able to prove it without any shadow of doubt by means of a practical experiment. So this is what they did , , , , , ,

They made a wooden ‘Railway Track’  a couple of metres long and into this they mounted a whole stack  of Bar Magnets set at an angle in such a way that only all the ‘Rebellious Little Corners’ (My terminology!! ) were exposed. They then prepared a Bar Magnet of a suitable length and shape to represent a ‘Train’ and placed this at one end of the Track. Guess what,, (are you ahead of me ??!! ), , , , , IT  ACTUALLY TRAVELLED TO THE OTHER END OF THE TRACK, ALL OF ITS OWN ACCORD, , , PROPELLED


MY  OWN  SUGGESTIONS                                                                                                          If the ‘track’ were to be made CIRCULAR , , ,  perhaps you might have a  ‘Perpetual Running  Magnetic  Motor’!!   It would probably be very weak, mechanically, as the “Rebellious Corners”  are only small, but, nevertheless,  it might be sufficient to drive a small permanently running little Desk Fan or something similar.!!






THE MAGNETIC GATE EXPERIMENT                                                           t                      Not content with only one experiment to prove their astonishing findings, Howard  and Steve devised a further experiment involving a “MAGNETIC GATE’. They made this by magnetizing four Bar Magnets such that the SIDES of the bars became North and South Poles. They then assembled these into a square ‘Picture Frame’, the front of which would be ALL North Pole whilst the back would be ALL South Pole.                   When a Bar Magnet was passed through the Frame it was found that an APPARENT North Pole, as indicated on a Magnetic Compass,  WOULD ACTUALLY ATTRACT ANOTHER NORTH POLE instead of REPELLING it, as it should do !!!  Howard explains that this is because one set of ‘Vortex Spins’ takes over and IT will provide the ATTRACTION although a Compass will register it as an opposing field (such that North will attract North, thus defying all present day ‘Laws of Physics”!!!

THE UNIVERSITIES                                                                                                                         The Universities could make this “Newly Found Magnetism” the basis for a Thesis for Examination Students. There is obviously a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT  of work  to be done by someone or other in order to unravel this revolutionary concept of Magnetism.

FOR  FURTHER  STUDY                                                                                                      Howard   Johnson’s  book  “The Secret World of Magnets”’    (from which bits have been taken for the above Write-Up)                                                              Published  by  “Cheniere  Press”, Santa Barbara,  U.S.A.                                        ISBN: 0.9725146-6-X .                                                                                                         It is a bit ‘Technical’ in places, but it is packed full splendid large glossy photographs just about on every page and well worth looking at.
