Linear and rotary motions of a macro body are entirely separate. Each of them is produced by separate set of work-done on a macro body. However, each matter particle of a linearly moving, rotating macro body has its own path of resultant motion. Its motion and path appear to be resultant of linear and rotary motions of the macro body. With respect to an absolute reference (about which all real actions on/about a macro body takes place) resultant motion of a constituent matter particle of a planetary body is along a wavy path in space. Since linear speed of a spinning planetary body is much greater than linear motion of its constituent matter particles due to planetary body's spin speed, every matter particle in the spinning planetary body always moves in the same direction in space. Spin motion of a planetary body is an illusion and it is valid only for considerations with respect to static reference of planetary body's spin axis. As real motion of all matter particles of a spinning planetary body (with respect to absolute reference) is always in the same linear direction, swirling motion of a planetary body's interior is a myth. Natural association of matter particles is to form an electro-magnetically neutral body. All planetary bodies are initially electromagnetically neutral bodies. It is the acquired parameters of these bodies, which produce their magnetism. Apparent spin motion of a planetary body does not cause interior matter to swirl around its axis of spin. To consider this imaginary swirling motion of a planetary body's magma, as the cause of planetary magnetism is not tenable.

Cause and nature of planetary magnetism is described here on the basis of a radically different concept, put forward in "Hypothesis on MATTER". Planetary magnetic field is produced by directional alignment of free floating atoms in relatively calm fluids on or near the surface of a spinning planet and it is sustained by induced magnetism of the body's ferrous core. Alignment of free floating atoms and hence the strength of planetary magnetism depends on absolute linear speed of the planetary body and quantity of fluid matter on it. Planetary magnetism is created by linear speed of the planet and sustained by apparent spin motion of a planet that has ferrous matter as its core. Magnets formed about either hemisphere of a planet (about its equator) are independent of each other. Natural upheavals or gradual re-distribution of ocean water on earth, affect the strength and direction of terrestrial magnetism.
