I came back full circle to the first book I started to dabble in magic with, IIH, and recently I summoned enough courage to approach PME, which at the time seemed high over my head. I have been reading intensively these years so now I feel the level of complexity of these works is quite acceptable, and in some respects downright simple.
I haven't found many accounts on the use of fluid condensers and spirit lamps as per Bardon's concept on them, please share what you can. Another thing I'd like to propose for discussion is his idea that if the spirit is not equipped by ways of the magician's implements with the energetic and material basis for manifestation of itself and the results, it would act erratically and won't conform to the specifications of the tasks - maybe because the spirit would have to use his/her own resources, and as such he would dispose of them as he/she seems fit.
PS: I included the magic mirror in the title because of it's use in Bardonian evocation, i.e to charge the space and the temple, and as such its position would be somewhere in a corner of the chamber (i.e not in front of the magician or in a triangle...)
