Evidently this sort of extravagant expectation does not attend your 
reading of quantum experiments designed to send detectable 
information back into the past (Cramer's current work), or various 
other delightful and shocking notions of savagely warped spacetime, 
wormholes, unobserved dark energy, etc etc. My own expectation is 
akin to Jef's: "it would mean refining or updating, and that is 
always a *good* thing." This is perhaps fortunate, because I've now 
encountered sufficient evidence to lead me to consider some psi 
phenomena well demonstrated. My head did not explode.
