Just a thought, maybe I've got no clue what I'm talking about, but based on what I know of magnetic fields and the recently discovered monopoles I'm curious as to why the concept hasn't been presented before to my knowledge. Before you jump to "free point energy" I'm familiar with the concept however I'm not so sure it's the same thing I'm thinking of. What I'm considering is active repulsion from a natural point rather then manipulating standard fields into acting differently. So for example we know traditional magnets, and electro magnets attract certain metals, and we also know some of the strongest electromagnets can have unusual effects on even standard objects. Therefore what I'm considering is merely repelling those same objects rather than attracting.
I'm curious as to how it would be accomplished and what it's actual practical applications would be. Though obviously the first thing that comes to my mind would be weaponry, namely things like coil guns or railguns. Then transportation and down the line.
For those of you that don't know I'll also take this opportunity to inform you that have in fact finally discovered monopoles, which unlike traditional magnets which always have north and south and their strength is determined by alignment monopoles are simply one or the other entirely. Even electromagnets have north or south poles. So for those of you serious about "free energy" devices this is an exciting time to be living in. Why are they so special you might ask? We all tend to know that a north pole and a south pole attract while two north poles will repel or for that matter any similar magnetic fields repel while opposites attract. So if you have these monopoles next to each other they will try and push away and if you rig a series of them to push constantly it's easy to rig some kind of generator to it and transfer energy. Really there's a substantial number of uses for them and many methods that could then be implemented to have substantial energy output. If you're interested apparently they've been made from carbon nanotubes, which in my experience have the ability to be used for extremely powerful electromagnets.
I'm also curious how an opposing force like this would interact with traditional magnets and magnetism and if it would follow any similar rules we've come to understand. For example if you insulate a magnetic force it's amplified more so if the insulator is also a magnet. So for example if you double wrap your coils on an electromagnet each full wrap around amplifies the magnet that much more having compound effects. Would this also be true of anti magnetism?
Clearly I'll have to find a timeline where this exists and see what I can learn. While I'm at it I should also pick up the lottery numbers for this future, what do you think?
