A motor produces a rotary motion by synchronizing the attractive and repulsive magnetic interactions of magnetic fields, transferring magnetic force into mechancial force. A stator (320) magnetically interacts with a rotor (310a and 310b), cycling through changes in magnetic phase. A second stator (342) interacts with a magnetic field to create an equal and opposite magnetic force sufficient to rotate the stator (320). A rotor (310a and 310b) has a pair of diametrically opposing arcuate magnetic channels (311, 312) located substantially near the periphery of the rotor (310a and 310b) that passes through the stator (320). The rotor (310a and 310b) revolves around the stator (320) so that its channel (311) envelopes and swings past the stator (320) in a magnetically attracting mode. When the stator (320) is initially enveloped in the channel (311), the stator (320) spins on its axis (344c) in a 'freewheeling mode' until approximately half the channel's sector has traveled past the spinning stator (320). The stator (320) stops spinning so that its polarity with respect to the rotor's channel is in a magnetically repelling mode.
