The Psionic Amplifying Helmet had it's origins years and years ago when I was a budding magician and got this idea that it would be really cool to have something I could wear on my head to increase the power of what I was doing. You see, I have this thing about hats and helmets, the house if full of them, and so naturally I wanted one for my magick.

I went to work and created a version of Fortunatus' Cap, which was a simple hard hat with a metal talisman charged to increase my power to command people glued onto it. I even had a little chant that went with it,

"Mind to mind,

I command they obey

I call they come.

My will be done!"

And it worked. Well, with my thing about helmets, when I built my first radionic unit on April 7, 1977, a day that shall live in infamy, I built the head electrode into a helmet that could be plugged into the box. From this evolved the Psionic Amplifying Helmet as we know it today. There are lots of versions of it out there now as people have been experimenting with it and improving on it, so I?ll give you a simple version to start with and then you can work from there as your own intuition and creativity leads you.

To make this device, you will need to procure, without haggling:

1 hard hat.

8 small magnet disks or circular magnets

1 length of copper wire

1 length of speaker wire

1 1/8? monaural audio jack

1 crystal

1 circle of foil

Remove the liner from the hard hat. Now, drill a hole at the top of the shell of the hard hat. Drill another hole at one side or the back of the hard the right size to mount the jack.

Glue the magnets in a circle above the rim of the hard hat shell. Once you have done that, take the copper wire and make a spiral (direction doesn't seem to matter) at one of the wire and lead the wire through the hole at the top of the helmet wrapping it around the crystal and then glue the crystal to the top of the helmet.

Put the liner back into the hard hat.

Attach the coil to the foil plate.

Strip the insulation off the ends of the speaker wire (I know that sounds elementary but you would be amazed at the number of people who forget this!)

Attach one set of the ends to the foil plate.

Attach the foil plate to the top of the liner where it will sit on the top of your head when you wear the helmet.

Run the speaker wire under the line to the jack hole.

Attach the leads of the jack to the speaker wire.

Mount the jack on the helmet.

At this point all you have to do is put on the helmet and think, getting a real clear image in your head of what you want to send and the helmet will automatically grab the psychic stuff as it comes out your head, run it around real fast and then shoot it out the top blasting it's way to the target. And by plugging the helmet into a radionic box, you create a direct connection between you and the instrument. (Which is why the jack is there!)
