I look forward to the day when genes for psi are found, and genetic
engineers tweak the genome to the extent that we get to see
individuals with abilities straight out of paranormal novels and comic
books. Perhaps by cooperating with super-bright AI, human researchers
will find the proof they crave, and then get to apply it.
