Yesterday I had the pleasure of using a new box at the Tabula Mentis meeting in Hitchin. Hertfordshire.

I ordered Paul McCaig's new Mind's Eye Box and had it customised to my own requirements. The box holds my ink blot cards, a set of psycards and the pack of photo psyche cards from Stephen Young. My performance involved a discussion of Jung's Pirmer Novus and our understanding of the collective unconscious in a modern context.

I asked a participant to write a concern on a piece of card and drop it into the box, after which he selected a photo card and we discussed what he saw in the image and whether it connected to the concern he had in his mind. Without ever going back into the box or even near it, I was able to connect his image directly to his concern, which in this case was future happiness (he had selected a picture of a pathway marked out on a beach).

The box is exquisitely made in wood, varnished to a fine finish, and has a green baize bottom. There is a slot in the top to receive the card and allows the participant to drop the card in freely. The design is exceedingly clever and practical for a wide rage of performance settings. Paul's customer service is up with there with Dan Baines and JC Mooreni. He responded to my requests and made the box to my specications. It comes with a great drawstring bag and easy to follow instructions.

This product is solid state and you will have a wide grin on your face when you learn its secret.

I really like the look of this minds eye box.
And the description has made me put on hold my plans to build my ow box.
This one sounds perfect.

Hi M.I.

that would be me Smile

Todd,
thank you for your very kind comments and for your input and advice regards the introduction of the Mind's Eye Box...as well as introducing me to the wonders of Skype Smile

We are in the process of producing a video ad for the Mind's Eye Box and are hoping for an official launch at the end of this month.
However, should you have any queries, please feel free to p.m. me here on the Café.

Had the pleasure of Paul showing me the workings of the Mind's Eye Box, late last week.
First off, Paul is a real gentleman and took the time to show me the box in great detail. We then discussed the specifics of the box he is completing for me, as I wanted something less ornate, without any markings, etc.

I was looking for something with a simple and yet completely reliable method, for a specific routine that I have been developing.
This box is exactly what I need.

Now, I will say this - perhaps at the risk of shocking a few people; this does not incorporate 'real magic,' (which is good, because I find that the fluctuating cost of Pixie Dust refills is insanely volatile given the commodities market), so there is a very simple principle at play. Simple, yet clever and most importantly - effective.

Thanks Eric.

You can get Pixie Dust refills from China, but be forewarned; it's synthetic and will make you sneeze.

Is non-synthetic pixie dust non-allergenic?

(Just in case it is important to know these things.)

There is an easy way to tell whether you have real pixie dust or fake rip-off cr*p.

Real pixie dust is invisible. The fake stuff looks like fine powder.
I have 24 limited edition bottles of the real stuff that I will sell for $100 each

The first 48 purchasers will also receive a velvet pouch to carry the bottle in.
The last 96 bottles will just come in a paper bag.

Pm me

Steve:


I never imagined that real pixie dust comes in bottles; children's magicians always retrieve it from a pocket. But, by definition, a guy with over 2000 posts knows the truth of these matters.

Do you give discounts to magicians who buy in quantities of (say) six or more, or are you limiting these to one per customer?

This looks like a "must-buy" and I really agree 100% with the criteria stated. I don't like the current dollar-to-pound ratio at the moment. Smile

Received my Mind's Eye Box this week.

This is a very simple "why didn't I think of that" principle that works beautifully and will make you laugh when you first start playing around with it.
Paul was a real pleasure to deal with a customized my box in a few ways so that it met my specific needs.

Now to work on my presentation!
