The orthogonal relation between the magnetic aspect (spin) of elementary particles’ energy with respect to direction of motion of these particles can be demonstrated at the macroscopic level by mechanical means. It can be proven that force aligning the spins of electrons in ferromagnetic materials causes the carrying energy of the electrons involved to align orthogonally to the field which can cause a motion detectable at the macroscopic level when that motion is not mechanically restrained (The Einstein-de Haas Effect). It can also be proven that mechanically forcing electrons in ferromagnetic materials to move in a common direction forces the spin of their carrying energy to align parallel, causing their combined magnetic field to become detectable at the macroscopic level (the Barnett Effect).
