    Think of it like leaves floating on a surface of water near a river bank. In such an inlet, there will be all sorts of eddies and currents on the surface. At any given point on the surface, a leaf placed there will experience force in some direction. Mathematically, you can think of this as a vector field. A vector to represent force assigned at each potential point across the surface, which there are infinitely many.
    The magnetic field is much the same. There are a lot of eddies and currents of magnetic force running through 3d space caused by a whole lot of things.
    If you study electomagnetism, you will find that the magnetic field interacts with the electric field, and how materials feel a combination of a magnetic and electric force depending on relative motion, and how materials influence the electric and magnetic field, and things like that.

    But you can simplify the whole thing down with the old high school experiment of pouring iron filings over and around a bar magnet on a desk, then jostling the desk a few times. A heavy bar magnet visibly affects only the magnetic field, but isn't affected by it. Iron filing are visibly affected by only the magnetic field, but don't affect it. Gravity pulling the iron filings to the desk allows you to see the shape of the field on a 2d plane. The friction of the desk on the filings and jostling the desk allows you to see the filings following the field slowly, so you can see its shape.

            That's not what OP was asking. You clearly don't even understand the difference between magnetic field and flux. I have no reason to believe you'll understand what magnetic field is.

    Flux lines indicate the field direction at each point in the field. They are mathematical in nature, not physical. Flux is physical, but flux lines are mathematical.

            So the electric field is uniform. It drops off with distance from the pole. Therefore there are lines that the voltmeter can follow that read the same voltage simply because the uniform field is the same strength along those lines. But the voltmeter will give a reading at any other point also. It will not read low then high then low then high. There are no physical lines. The way the iron filings line up is different. Lots then none then lots then none. And those spaces and fills follow lines. The explanation for the filings bunching up is probably that the iron filings affect the magnetic field, making it bunch into lines like that.

            You have no idea what you're talking about. Electric field lines of an electric dipole look identical to magnetic field lines of a magnetic dipole.

            Place a compass in those empty spots. It'll still point to the magnet in accordance with the magnetic field lines that the iron filings don't pick up.

      >This particular pattern is common in nature and is integral to the toroidal dynamics. It can be seen as the cross-section of a torus (the double spiral also maps a variety of energy flow patterns
      >The entire double spiral pattern is made from a single phi spiral, duplicating this spiral to create a vortex pattern in both clockwise and counter-clockwise spin directions.
      >The next remarkable phenomenon that emerges is what’s called the Phi Boundary Condition. It is the distinct circle that can be seen
      >The circle is a synergetic result of spinning the phi spiral, creating a boundary condition
      >This is a synergetic phenomenon that creates an energetic “boundary” (in quotes because the word boundary can imply a wall or fence, which is not the case here) that defines the interface between the inside and outside of a system or entity from a purely energetic perspective.
      >In order for anything to come into existence in form there naturally manifests a boundary defining itself and its environment. This is what the Phi Boundary Condition fundamentally represents.
      >It is easy to see how this manifests in the basic double spiral pattern of a pine cone, for example.

    Here is a lecture of the original discover from Faraday himself (from his notes, starting at 30') :

    ?t=1808

    tldr :
    Before Faraday : Every Scientists think that magnetic force acts in straight line, like any forces known before.
    After Faraday : Magnetic force follows a curve around the magnet.
