Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Doesn't matter insofar as the epistemological point is concerned: If the best, most precise experimental apparatus available cannot detect the effect in any reliable way, then it is very hard to distinguish from invisible pink unicorns. If you can come up with a physically plausible detection scheme, then you've bought yourself a little bit of time. But making vague appeals to what might or might not be discovered in the grim darkness of the far future... well, that's just unproductive.

Science advances one equation at a time; speculation about the nature of major scientific discoveries made decades or centuries from now is something best left to SciFi writers.
