Magnetic Pendulum Randomly Moves in a Chaotic Way

Chaotic Pendulum

Vlogger markhacks (previously) created a magnetic pendulum that moves rather randomly and in a rather chaotic fashion due to reversed polarity magnets sitting below said pendulum.

I made another pendulum of cardboard. Using multiple magnets with reversed polarity causes chaotic motion.
