comment Why can't electromagnetic radiation from magnets be used for apparent perpetual motion?
@Ron - so if you have a finite energy output and it lasts forever... that's finite? What about a candle that burns forever. -1 on all your questions :)

Would you mind commenting on the new answer and on my reply to it?

Imagine a row of permanent magnets, 1,000,000 miles long, each's N facing downstream in the line, and then you accelerate 1 magnet with its S facing upstream against the N magnets. It's on a track and locked from turning. Couldn't you accelerate the magnet down track at a certain speed SP and have it remain at speed SP until the end of the line (assuming you set up everything just right and there was low friction)

@dmckee - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPERA_experiment states that OPERA was a collaboration between CERN themselves, and 1 other agency. At this point, I'll leave you with a suggestion: Do some research before further posturing.

@dmckee - Ha, if you'd read it, you'd have know that OPERA was the name of the experiment, by CERN, not some other agency - public.web.cern.ch/public/en/spotlight/SpotlightCNGS-en.html

@dmckee - AdamRedwine - My seemingly cynical comments are indented to be thought provoking. Science is about questioning what we know, not assuming we know everything. I defer to CERN's recent "discoveries", again, and the reason I ask for a proof that can be directly witnessed by my 5 senses is because when our senses provide extraneous and/or erroneous data we can use interpersonal communication (as a control) to rule it out as anomalous (e.g., the case of the floating objects after a stroke). How can we determine anomalous behavior in tools which rely on data without controls?

@AdamRedwine - You trust your brain more than your nervous system? If memory serves me, your brain is kind of the core of your nervous system.

comment Physical -> Chemical -> Nuclear -> (what comes next)
@AdamRedwine - Yeah, just like Cern examined faster than light particles, or Higgs Boson? And, then... realized they didn't. You see, there is a degree of separation between anything and everything, but if the only degree of separation is a microscope and your own nervous system, one can more confidently conclude that one has "examined" something :)

(in my last comment, I'm attempting to suggest that or ask whether E=mc2 need not having anything to do with atoms, specifically, meaning that the potential nuclear yield of a given portion of U235 might not be representative of the amount of energy contained therein)

@user758556 - can you put that into an answer, and perhaps elaborate a bit more about why mass energy equivalence (the theory) precludes the possibility of there being more mass in an object than we can observe at the atomic level.

@AdamRedwine - we don't examine them, rather their effects. If you know otherwise, I'd like to see a few photos of your favorite quarks, or perhaps you could tell me about the experiences of those who have felt them, or in any way otherwise experienced them with their 5 senses.
