Another problem with those studies, which is very difficult to solve: Suppose that a major university, or the Department of Defense, or whoever is studying ESP. Eventually, they find that it doesn't work. But meanwhile, what's the headline? "Harvard researchers studying ESP". A lot of people are going to look at a headline like that and conclude that there must be something to it, or else why would they be studying it?
