... is there anyway to suspend an object using magnets with the base on top?
Seems very likely.

... precisely placed magnet located at the inside top of the globe.
in the illustrated orientation adds to the stability/orientation of the globe and that stability and location relative to the base is reflected in the software control.

So inverting the contraption would now place the magnet next to the base to keep north up; likely control software would have to be modified.

How would you in theory light a freely suspended bulb? That requires a complete circuit and offhand I can't think of a way to accomplish that....
