Two magnets, like poles facing, will "levitate". And they seem happy to do that forever. In common experience, it takes energy to jump, an airplane to generate thrust to convert to lift, or a helicopter to hover. "Hovering" for the local TV newscopter, or a SpaceX rocket is an energy intensive endeavor. Two doughnut shaped magnets on a stick, hovering, counteracts gravity like the helicopter, but unlike the helicopter does not "consume energy." In my case, my "everyday experience" is interfering with my ability to consider the problem without bias.. Can someone set me on the proper track? What am I overlooking?
