Im also interested by this topic. Mahatma letters (127) speaks briefly about the copper wall room, Randolp's Seership explains it in more details and earlier than Mahatma letters. Now is there any way to trace, where they both got this method? Or was it solely an invention of Randolph? Copper mirrors used like Swedenborg mirrors are common practice, but the combination of triangle executors, magnet above head, north orientation and insulation from earth is something I've seen only on these two sources. When I tried to search if there really are temples with such dark rooms, I found none so far, but maybe someone of you knows more.
I also read from my finnish translation of Mahatma letters 127, that it is written in Sinnetts handwriting. Has someone investigated surroundings and history of the letter?
