Simple Pulse Motor in self oscillation running on a super capacitor

This is my simple pulse motor running on a 10 farad super cap filled to 2 volts. In the video I stop the motor and show how the circuit goes into self- oscillation similar to how a Joule Thief circuit operates. The 1N914 switching diode is replace with a white LED and that illuminates brightly when the circuit is self-oscillating. ” Maggie” is shown operating with a 3/8″ neo sphere in her mouth that rotates in the flux field generated by the spinning motor magnet.
