Oakey,,,about your comment on the poles attraction/repulsion...you got me thinking about something. If the Earth's magnetic field reversed, I wonder...would that affect our distance from other planetary bodies, or our orbit around the Sun? Or our Moon's orbit? I confess a bit of 'migrain-ey puzzlement on this issue; geologists seem to agree that Earth's magnetic field poles reverse periodically, and they also have been reporting recently that the field strength is weakening, and accelerating in decline...if our field collapses, or reverses, one wonders if the moon's orbit will change, and therefore tidal forces on Earth. Like you, I can only ponder the consequences and mechanics.
It may be, that when we actually figure it out, we will have a model of a 3-force system, with electrical, magnetic, and gravity features, all inter-related. (Jeeez, I'm getting a headache!)
