I believe you are referring to the word mnemonic which is a word or phrase which is designed to help you remember something. An example may be "Never Eat Soggy Waffles" for remembering the order of directions around a compass.

If they would intersect, that would mean that at one point in space, the field lines point to two different direction simultaneously. A compass needle would have to point to two different directions at once.

No, it never is.No, it never is.No, it never is.No, it never is.
