Re: [Phys-L] Figuring Physics solution Jan 2018

I was careful to maintain the sense of 'unstoppable' as unable to turn on and off, rather than implacable, so any method of applying the force was acceptable in my image - an epoxy patch carrying a hook with fishing line to a side post pulley to a hanging weight, or a leaning stick, or a screw jack to an adjoining pillar etc....
 Not sure about the 'non-object' aspect though!

I expect I am missing something clever.... what's imaginary about a 10 N force?

Since I’m not veryfamiliar w/ not object forces, which I called imaginary.

I suppoe one can imbead a maged in the marble and then bring up another magnet — still have an object.

Or are you thinking of an extremely strong light source?
