And don't you just love it? :-)
(I am speaking from experience. Intellectually induced headaches are such fun!

As for the rest, you broached - directly and indirectly - two essential questions: indirectly, the question of scale; directly, the role of God (or whatever one chooses to call the underlying master intelligence), which seems to be operating from within and from without the human consciousness at the same time, being identical (or "co-identical") with it.

I wish I had the time and linguistic abilities to have more in depth conversations on here

I can see how time can be a problem.
But you think and you speak about it, which is more than could be said of most people on any board.
Besides, it's asking questions which is a must for any in-depth conversation. And the simpler they are, the more valuable they are - not just because they are elegant, but because they block the usual sprawling of BS.

Thanks for fanning this discussion up!

P.S. For those unfamiliar with the work of Nassim Haramein (mentioned in the post I am replying to), go here.

Research does seem to be showing - seemingly unambiguously - that such is the case with photons and perhaps other elementary particles.
But I think the possibility of "hidden variables" (even though they remain theoretical) should not be disregarded. When such earth-shattering implications are at stake, one cannot be too careful: a false conclusion would branch out into countless dead-ends.

But there is also the question of scale.

It seems only logical that the same laws that are at work on a microscale would also apply to larger structures.

Why, then, are we not - again, seemingly - observing them?

Which brings us right back to the previously unthought-of possibility of a quantum "amnesia", proposed by Maccone, which is the subject of this thread...

Just adding an interesting (thoughtful) blog entry about Maccone's theory:

The Arrow of Time
