Solid magnets (like the ones you are familiar
with) have crystal-like sections of metal
within them that "pretend" to have electric
currents inside (they aren't intelligent, so can't
really pretend as you would, but they do behave
like they have electricity in them when they
don't). These pretend currents exert a magnetic
field, which exerts a force on other electric
currents be they real or also pretend, and they
also induce currents in non-magnets nearby,
allowing them to create force.
