What is a magnetic ring? Keep in mind that if you want to produce a magnetic field using a ring, the ring cannot be closed (scroll down to botton of
this page: hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...
-> the blue lines are the magnetic field on that drawing) and it will
need an electric current if we ever want to see a magnetic field. A ring by itself cannot be magnetic because there would be no poles.
Then in 8 magnets on each of the rings.
That's not even a sentence. (verb missing)
These rings push the magnet down in all directions.
The magnetic field of a ring is perpendicular to the direction of the current, hence it will never 'push' the magnet down in all directions.
NOW imagine the magnets pushing in on the ring making it gain mass.
What is 'it', the ring, or the magnets? But anyways, the magnets won't push on the ring, but if they somehow did, how exactly would 'it' gain
mass? Remember, mass measures the amount of matter in an object, if the amount of matter doesn't change, then mass won't change either.
Everything else you say is based on the assumptions that everything before it works, but I just don't see it yet.
