Okay, magnets in hand.. we are travelling just short of the speed of light 0.99c dont know how we got that fast.. but that doesnt matter.. We fly past a clump of say iron filings.. the magnet attracts the iron filings.. instantly speeding them up to our speed (well almost of course.. I dare say it would have an impact but bear with)Firstly, forgive my ignorance, but where does the energy come from when a fixed magnet attracts material.. I am going to stick with magic.. but I would benefit from education!
More importantly.. IF those iron filings were actually travelling past me at the speed of light and were heavier than I.. do we get attracted to them and actually speed up?
