"That's fine. Our institution will sponsor your project."

Years later...

"Well, professor? What has your team found so far?"

"We have confirmed beyond any doubt that psychic phenomena are indeed very enigmatic and we need to know more about them."

"Amazing! We have to publish these findings at once!"
