You say forget North - South - negative - positive - use a compass test - not buying a compass, that's why I bought the cheap set of magnets because they were premarked with the North side.
In my mind the side that sticks to the refrigerator would be considered the "N" side - only point the "N" side to the skin or together with a spacing to create a magnetic field. Wouldn't that be a simpler test, rather that worry about the compass switching polarity??
The magnetic field I envision you have described in previous posts (which I'd love to see a pic of set up) are 2 heavy duty magnets on either side of a bottle.
I'm a "if a lil is good, a whole lot is better" kind of gal & I am envisioning 4 square magnets in the N, S, E, W positions all with their "N" faces pointing inward
I have found magnets with a 4" x 1" N face (x 1.75" deep) 100# pulling power. Four of these would create a space 4" Tall with 1" sides minimum - just about perfect to slide in a 2 oz bottle. They would need to be braced & I assume separated further so they don't smash together, but I am assuming that the space created should have an incredible magnetic field.
Is a 4 sided magnetic field overkill, am I way off base?
p.s. - Is it kismet that the randomly created avatar that I was assigned echoes the magnetic field I envision?? Is it kismet that Cayce's recommendation of Atomidine (that I was under the impression was no longer avail & I searched Cayce's material looking for a cure 10 years ago) will be the key to my health problems?? Lord I hope so. I didn't have internet 10 years ago though. I do believe in the power of this medium.
