I withdraw my "It takes money to make money" withdrawal. I stumbled onto Randi's link without taking the time to read it before wasting everyone's time with a post.
    Really though, I don't expect a detailed explanation, but I'd like to know what is the general mechanism being posited for psi. Is it time-travel to the past or is it information carrying quantum entanglement? Big Einstein or little Einstein?

No, sadly. Randi, unlike professional parapsychologists, is not a
scientist, he is a showman. If you think his offer is genuine, you're more
gullible than fudley's caricature of a parapsychologist.

His stock in trade is demonstrating that deluded dowsers are... gee...
deluded. That people who claim to see auras are deluded or fraudulent
(usually the former). Big deal.
