Actually, a resonance type theory could be easily tested, far less easily understood. Take your standard deck of psi-cards (cards with a picture of a circle, a triangle, wavy lies, whatever). Then, create another deck that simply has numbers on it. Show the psi card and the same numbered card to a thousand individuals, (when you show them the cirle card, show them the card numbered one), ask them to try to impress their feelings of the circle on the numbered card.
Then, show only the numbered cards to people. See if there is any statistical hits.

That study has been done, and from what I understand the stats are NOT repeatable.
Different answers each time, makes it very unreliable to measure anything.
Fact is that the hypothesis itslef is difficult if not impossible to test with the technology available to us right now.
Once the technology gets there, we shall see, but until then, any measurements such as what you stated will be unreliable.

(If the history of science shows us anything, it is that we get nowhere by labeling our ignorance god)
