I have no idea.

Here's an interesting tidbit: a friend of mine who studied 'pyramid
power' for a while told me that electron microscope photographs had
shown conclusively that putting razor blades in a pyramid had no effect
whatsoever or their sharpness (or subsequent dulling when used).
Nonetheless when he did this he used the same blade for months.

Personally I'm happy to believe that there are certain, usually very
weak, wierd effects we associate with ESP or other pseudoscience going
on in our universe, and that none of these will manifest themselves in
the hostile environment of Randi's lab.

Or to put it another way: Randi's lab is deep in the 'Slow Zone'. I
don't expect anything unusual to happen there.
