Hey all, now this is my first instructable, it's not really the same as others but it explains an idea of an instructable that can be made by anyone. I know it will be annoying but the steps aren't steps of work but they are parts of explanation of an idea that came to my mind.
The old classic idea of free energy have been around since long time ago, lots of inventors have been dedicated to this obsessive quest to construct the ultimate energy machine that will give us FREE ENERGY. Unfortunately all the designs and machines that have been made never worked, they're just there on the shelf as evidences for human obsession with control over matter and energy, some wanted to harness gravity power to give useful energy, others thought about those mysterious stones that can attract metallic objects MAGNETS, but all that isn't wrong at all, it just needed to be placed in the right place, in the right structure.

Step 1: General
Every where you look at an energy device, you see two things, conversion and GPD ( general potential difference ). Take the battery for example, it CONVERTS chemical energy into electrical energy, that produces a POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE of 1.5 volts.
Take another example, the dam that produces electricity from river water, the water level DIFFERENCE makes water flow from side to the other through the dam which turns the dynamos to CONVERT mechanical into electricity, And lots of other examples...
Step 2: Getting Specific
So it's all based on conversion and potential difference, so how can we find these two things in a magnetic motor, almost all current designs of magnetic motors don't contain either or both of the two main elements, so how do we expect it to run??
Step 3: Wrong Principle of Classic Magnetic Motors
According to the photo above, you can see that the magnets may give us 100J of power while they're being attracted to each other, but on the other way, we need 100J to separate them and put them in the original state, and maybe more energy is needed to reset them when considering friction, so it's a loss of energy..
Step 4: And There Comes the Golden Idea..
This idea came to me when I was surfing the Internet. I read something about magnetic shield that can shield magnetic field and prevent magnets for example from sticking to each other when placed in between. MAGNETIC SHIELDING, let's say it's a sheet of a material that prevents magnetic field from passing through it ( by the way the sheet itself does not interact with the magnet ). So if we placed that sheet between the two magnets right before they stick to each other, they will no longer attracted to each other and thus we can remove them easily, and there lies the power difference..
As you can see energy gained from the attraction of the two magnets into each other is 100 jewels while that energy needed to remove them from each other after adding the magnetic field is about four joules which means that energy gained is much higher than energy needed to reset the system into its original state which means there's excess energy gained from the power difference.
Step 5: Making a Complete Machine Based on the Principle
After we made this test on a simple system of two magnets and one magnetic shield I went more complex on designing a new machine that continues this principle which will serve as a magnetic motor, that is illustrated in the photo.
It might seem complicated but to simplify this thing I'm going to just say how it works:
It has two cylinders on each side, each side has two big thick disk magnets facing opposite pole, it starts by taking lets say the right side, the magnetic shield is not ( on ), so the magnets will attract each other turning the fly wheel, then, when it reaches the nearest to the other magnet, the half disk magnetic shield strikes in and the attraction stops, at the same time the magnetic shield that was ( off ) on the other side turns ( on ) - I hope you understand what I mean by on and off - and the magnets on the other side starts attracting each other and the fly wheel completes it's cycle, and so on this cycle kelps looping again and again, and that's how my magnetic motor works. PS: THE DRAWING IS NOT BASED ON ANY SCALE OR RATIOS.
Step 6: Going Ahead
Now that's just the simple design of the machine, I made it to make things simple. The more complicated one has up to five sets, with full mechanical automation of turning on and off the magnetic shielding.
If you have any questions on the idea/ design/ principle ask me in the comments I'll try my best to clear things for you.
The only thing that stops me from building this machine is:
1- I don't have resources like big neodymium magnets..
2- which is the hardest: finding a material that shields magnetic field completely or at least 90% of it.
