Hi Dannotz -
The 'Devil's Toybox' can also come in other shapes besides the Mirrored Cube e.g. a Large Mirrored Globe (i.e. very much looking like a giant
basketball-sized silver mirrored Christmas ornament with the mirrored side on the 'inside' - or as a Great Pyramid Shape ToyBox (Quadrangled Square
at the bottom and Triangles for the four 'sides', mirrors facing inwards), or a Tetrahedral Dome Mirrored Toybox etc.
In fact ANY of the Platonic Solids shapes will work, apparently !
The Mirrored Cube ToyBox of whatever shape seems to be the 'loudest' when recorded via a EVP device (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) which must be
attached to the OUTSIDE of the ToyBox via a 'Telephone Listening Device Mircrophone Attachment' that is 'suctioned' to the outside of the glass.
The 'loudest' recordings typically take place if there is a 'haunted' (i.e. spirit-charged) object of any size (i.e. from the size of a pin to the
size of a house) placed beside it or with the object placed INSIDE the spirit charged object - such as placing the ToyBox inside a 'haunted' room
within a 'haunted' house, for example...).
One could call these spirit-charged objects 'Things that Have the Shine', if you like old Stephen King/Stanley Kubrik movies !
Most often, the EVP device can pick up sounds that humans standing by cannot hear at all (it just sounds like pure silence to them when they stand in
front of the ToyBox - but when they play back the 'tape' they hear distinct sounds that do NOT sound like random noise or the next door neighbour
e.g. human or animal screams (both male and female - and of all ages too), words in various languages including what sound like glossolalia (speaking
in tongues) also, rythmically ordered drum-tapping or sharp metallic tapping sound (or dull wooden sounding thuds) also what sound like ghostly
'shouts' or 'groans' or 'laughter', as well as various poltergeist type banging noises
Plus a lot of rather loud and disturbing (almost random sounding) electrical static noises which are often accompanied or mixed in with (i.e. audibly
melded in with) more ordered sounds knockings, rhythmic rappings, weird pseudo-music, a host of the most creepy sounds you can imagine e.g. that of
antique billiard balls (which because of the material they used to be made of in the olden days have a specifically recognisable 'clink' to them), the
sound of water or air currents, the cries of children etc.
Some recordings have several sound types occuring simultaneously - so you have to listen to the tape over and over and over - and many practically beg
to be 'separated' electonically by a professional 'sound mixer' - which means you might have to contact a person in the film or record-business etc.
i.e. persons who would have the necessary equipment at their disposal (and the expertise too !) to do this for you...and it might cost
So one would have to choose a Design for a Mirrored ToyBox (Cubic, Pyramidical, Conical, Spherical, Tetrahedral etc.) THEN get an EVP tape recording
device with a Telephone Listening Suction Attachment then choose a place to position the ToyBox within or nearby (preferably inside the 'most haunted
room' within a 'haunted house' or some object 'with the Shine' or with some kind of astral energy 'history', e.g. an antique brass-button taken from a
Grey US Confederate Soldier's Uniform slain in battle etc.)
Then you're off to the races, as they say.
It might be that certain platonic solid shapes work better than others, or perhaps the quality grade of the actual glass used in the mirrors might
also have an effect - also mirrors can be made out of shined-metal e.g. copper, although there is an old Wiccan & Druid belief that the metal 'Iron'
repels such spirit activity and to avoid using Iron (Fe) objects if you are intent on spirit conjuring...I suppose gold plated (or solid gold !)
plates would work well, if one could afford to procure them these days - think of the GOLDEN Cube of the Qadosh-Qadoshim ('Holy of Holies' - at least
according to the supposedly ancient Torah of the Jews ! ) in the 1st Temple dedicated to the clan god YHWH and his Asherah - allegedly built by a
SyroPhonecian architect 'Hiram of Tyre 'under the auspices (and treasury !) of the Judaen clan chief Jedediah (aka Sholomon) c. 940 BCE atopm Mount
Moriah in ancient Jebus (=Jerusalem) !!
