Just wondering, Im sure there is a good reason.

Like what if you could amp it and alternate a current through the already established field?

because the magnetic field is so tiny, it doesn't make enough useful electricity

if it could, any conductor moving through the magnetic field could produce lethal amounts of electricity. like hold a metal bar, go for a walk with it, ZAP YOU"RE DEAD!!!

I know the field is tiny, but is there not a way to use transformers to amp it then alternate it like common AC but wireless?

what energy were you thinking of to 'amp it with'? you're suggesting to put energy into something to get energy out.
