If psi is real, that's significant, whether or not there are immediate
practical applications, because it indicates that our understanding of how

Electricity, nuclear fission/fusion, the laser, ..., could all have been
dismissed similarly back before they were understood and exploited. Luckily,
some researchers stayed open-minded, and huge breakthroughs with major
practical uses resulted.
