Here is a challenge for any person who wishes to test his or her psychic powers and prove to the world the usefulness of psychic abilities.
I have encrypted a short text file with Pretty Good Privacy, the famous encryption method that has withstood all attempts to crack it (at least at the time of this writing -- on September 25, 1998). This file is encrypted with a password. It is not encrypted with my PGP public key. This means that anyone with a working copy of PGP can decrypt this file...if you know the password or passphrase.
Will any person professing to possess psychic abilities be able to decrypt this file? All you have to do is successfully divine the password or passphrase, and make that password available for everyone to see. Anyone can then use the password or phrase to decrypt this file with PGP, thus proving that the password is correct.
Cryptology, the art and science of ciphers, has been employed in many different ways throughout the course of history. However, there have been no notable historical accounts of psychic abilities being used to crack passwords or passphrases. Apparently, the divination of security passwords is not an ability commonly possessed by many psychics. If this was a regular occurence, then certainly the larger corporations would long ago have hired their own professional psychics, to guard against psychic intrusion and to learn the secrets of their competitors?
With this in mind, I invite you to provide the correct password or passphrase. I am not a rich man, and I cannot promise you a large monetary reward if you can decrypt this file. However, if you are able to decrypt this file, you will have successfully accomplished one of two feats: 1) You will have presented a strong example that psychic abilities really do exist; or 2) you will have "cracked" the famous PGP encryption, which would be a noteworthy feat in itself.
Here is the encrypted file. Are you up to the challenge?

Did you successfully guess the password? These folks will want to talk to you.
Two more online tests for psychics. Why does everyone else want to use cards?
The following PGP file contains the password for the encrypted text file. This password file is encrypted with my PGP public key, so that only I can decrypt it. I am not asking to you try to decrypt this file; I am making this file public so that the password can be provided, if it ever becomes necessary to so so.
