Defying gravity

Everybody knows that an object tends to roll down an inclined plane, with increased speed if friction or other conditions allow this, because the force of Earth gravitation is applied to the object and pulls it downwards to the lowest point possible.

In this experiment a double cone Is climbing up on inclined plain by itself. This happens because the diverging structure enables the center of gravity of the double cone to go down whereas at the same time the double cone itself climbs up the rails. In this case the center of gravity of the double cone is lowered more by the diverging structure than it is raised by the climbing process.
