*Please note that I can only follow concepts, the actual mathematics confuse me terribly. Is it possible to create perpetual motion if the following circumstances are given: An enclosed space with one three stationary magnets, one on top, bottom, and one connecting the two centers. The environment is a vacuum. The longitudinal magnet is a spiral, made from attached magnets so that there a series of alternating poles all along its length. A free moving magnet, fit to oppose the top, bottom, and central magnets is placed in the spiral groove. Would the moving magnet, when dropped from the top of the spiral, fall without friction to the bottom of the arrangement, then be forced back up again because of the opposing magnetic forces and then repeat? If this sounds confusing please ask some questions so I can try to clarify.
