And peril is forgot!

Sang in my heart, and I triumphed
In the savour and scent of his music,
His magnetic and mastering song.

So, too, our strange unrest in this our dwelling,
The trembling that thou joinest with our mirth,
Are but thy magnet-communings compelling
Our spirits farther from the scope of earth.
"The Dark Companion" by James Brunton Stephens
We would fly with all things to the goal of their flying,
We would turn with all things to the magnetic star,
But we never can live, because of our dying,
And we never can be, for the things that we are.
"The Futile" by Genevieve Taggard
He dozes, aged with watches passed--
Years, years of pacing to and fro;
He dozes, nor attends the stir
In bullioned standards rustling low,
Nor minds the blades whose secret thrill
Perverts overhead the magnet's Polar will:--
"The Haglets" by Herman Melville
Oh, the great city's madness when at nightfall
The crippled trees gape by the blackened wall,
The spirit of evil peers from a silver mask;
Lights with magnetic scourge drive off the stony night.
Oh, the sunken pealing of evening bells.

The ﬁrst magnetically dominated model (FML) assumes that the magnetic ﬁeld conﬁguration consists of a dipole magnetic ﬁeld generated by randomly oriented magnetic ﬂux loops.
Constraining the Nature of X-ray Cavities in Clusters and Galaxies
The effect of ordered magnetic ﬁelds is more complicated: instabilities are prevented in cases where a magnetic ﬁeld provides a high tension at the surface of the cloud, but the effects depend on the strength, orientation and scale of the magnetic ﬁeld.
The turbulent destruction of clouds - I. A k-epsilon treatment of turbulence in 2D models of adiabatic shock-cloud interactions
The gravitomagnetic ﬁeld generates frame-dragging of a gyroscope in a way formally similar to the magnetic ﬁeld producing a change of orientation of a magnetic needle (magnetic dipole).
Lunar Laser Ranging, Gravitomagnetism and Frame-Dragging
On analogous lines to ferroﬂuids, magnetic rocks providing a surface ﬁeld strength ∼ tens of milli-Tesla would have turned any newly forming magnetic particle suspension into tiny magnets, leading to the emergence of magnetically structured phases (MSPs).
Magnetism, FeS colloids, and Origins of Life
Then, the presence of magnetic rocks in the mound, represented by a surface magnetic ﬁeld strength (say, in the range 0-200mT) needs to be checked for any magnetic structure formation in different concentrations of newly forming greigite suspension.
