THE REASON I ASK IS BECAUSE IF ONE POLARITY OF SAY A SMALL CERAMIC MAGNET 
CAN BE BLOCKED THAT WOULD MEAN THAT TWO MAGNETS HAVING ONLY ONE POLARITY 
SUCH AS ONLY S POLARITY WOULD ALWAYS REPELL ONE ANOTHER. THEY WOULD PUSH 
AGAINST ONE ANOTHER NO MATTER WHAT POSITION THEY ARE IN. SO IF ONE HAS A 
GYROSCOPE LIKE DEVICE HAVING A NUMBER OF THESE MAGNETS, ALONG WITH ONE 
EXTERIOR MAGNET THE POTENTIAL WOULD BOGGLE THE MIND.
