    Electricity and magnetism work together. If there is one part there is the other. Wish I could give you something more fancy than that.

    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    A generator typically has a permanent magnet surrounded by coils of wire. When the magnet is rotated, the changing magnetic field induces a current in the coils.

    Mutually co-dependent: Magnetic field exists as a consequence of flow of electric current; electric current exists as a consequence of a moving magnetic field.

    By golly, we maybe got something here!
