Main Question or Discussion Point

Is it correct to say that all materials exhibit some form of magnetism?

I was reading on Wikipedia that there are different kinds of magnetism (Ferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic, Paramagnetic, Diamagnetic) and that all materials exhibit at least one of them.

even photons and neutrinos , there is another thread going on in QM about the reaction to photons and neutrinos in the stern gerlach experiment

Ok this is interesting, thanks

Yup. Here, have some levitating frogs. With a big enough magnetic field they could even levitate you.
I feel sorry for that frog.

Thanks, I'll check it out.
