Say one had a strong magnetic force attached to his shoe in a way that was not considered carrying.

Would he be able to point his shoe in a Reshus Harabim and move something with opposite magnetic force so long as he didn't touch the moving object?

  • Do you have reason to think this would be different than attractive magnetic force, in a scenario where the thing being moved doesn't move and attach to the magnet?

  • I think the point is that the object doesn't cling to the shoe or it would definitely be moving it.

  • @andrewmh20 if it was attached yet was not considered part of the original item, then I assume it would be considered carrying as you are carrying that as well.

    Sounds like blowing something into Reshut HaRabbim.

  • @DoubleAA that occurred to me as well, although that might be Kocho whereas here it not his power.
