So before i explain, let me start out by saying i am not a scientist by any means , I understand the logic of things but not always the mechanics,
I have seen many claims concerning perpetual motion and free energy and have no desire to be pigeon holed as such, so , to be clear this is just an idea i had that seems to make sense logically but the mechanics are unclear.
Based around the principle of the magnet falling down the copper pipe, but using a hollow copper torus for the magnet to fall down should logically generate, as long as its in motion, a repelling magnetic field, if this can be turned into energy, which i believe it can then that energy could be used to power a small motor which could be used to rotate the torus which should generate energy and so on, as far as i understand as long as the magnet is moving over the surface of the copper it will generate a repelling field, now here is what needs to be proven, firstly, can the motion of the copper tube generate enough of a repelling field to repel the magnet away fro the surface, if it cant the idea is dead. Secondly can enough energy be generated to power a small motor if as much friction is removed from the equation, if it can and the first problem is solved then logically you have something that creates its own power. while i realise this is so simple it MUST have been tried i have yet to see anything similar on youtube,
