If the Psi miracle came from somebody with a reputation for being an outstanding experimental scientist then I would start to get interested; if his extraordinary results were duplicated by other experimentalists that I respected then I would be convinced; this hasn't happened yet, it hasn't even come close to happening. And no ASCII sequence posted on a obscure website claiming an experimental breakthrough could do that.
