In re-reading Is it possible to separate the poles of a magnet? (amongst others) the question mentioned in the title here just occurred to me.
It may not be possible, at our current levels of technology & science, to expect/create a monopole.
Can a magnet, instead, be asymmetric?
i.e. Could the poles of a magnet have varying intensity? If yes, would such asymmetry be preliminary evidence that a pragmatic monopole (one pole very weak compared to the other) may exist?
