Perpetual motion

I am wondering if perpetual motion is possible using mono polar magnets and magnets that do not depolarize (these are hypothetical magnets)
If you had a magnet that used opposing polarities to spin a wheel that had no pivot points, but instead used magnets to levitate the design and it was in a vacuum, would it be perpetual and how would you show this in a formula?
I do understand that all energy needs to come from somewhere and that would come from that magnets, but with no other place for the energy to go, would it be possible to create perpetual motion?

Thanks for taking the time to respond,
Jake

Why do you need magnets? Why not just spin anything vacuum?

There are some useful links in the PF Rules thread to help you understand why PMMs are not possible. From the Forbidden Topics list (see the Rules/Guidelines thread in the Feedback forum):
