Greetings fellow members!(New guy!) Before I would start, I've already read a lot of the threads related to "magnets" and "energy". I do undertand the PF forums rules. So please don't lock this thread and say "THIS IS NOT ALLOWED" in reality it is... But maybe its because of the unfortunate reason that this topic attracts many "crackpots". However, that shouldn't effect me or others to learn? should it? I've had my share of reading those posts and understanding the reasons why. But here I come to be enlightened about an idea, that is really popular as you all may already know... I do not have any intentions to speak about Perpetual motion, this is not related to it at all... Although the irony is that many have used magnets for that blinded and ignorant reason. And gave it an "X" mark for further discussions, hasn't it?! So as a layman here who's really studying basic physics in hopes of becoming an engineer soon! Could you please describe to me why magnets can NOT be a source of energy? In any way? Again a source of energy that changes or becomes less/weaker/converted/etc... In due time, with respect to the laws of conservation AND thermodynamics. I have a set of arguments, and my mind just can't stop of this idea, so I'd like this to die from your reasons and I can move on! Please I ask of all the Admins + Mentors to give me a chance to learn! Thank you.
