If Haramein is really going to evolve along the lines of a quantum wave theory then as you say it is going to take a lot of "paradigm shifting".
One such paradigm shift that might help is conceptualizing quantum waves as a superposition.
I can remember reading in "The Tau of Physics" back in the 70's about Bell's Theorem and the "Many worlds" implication that every observation
might cause the creation of a different universe. It doesn't make much sense unless you resolve the problem by understanding that kind of multiverse
as a superposition.
Lots of examples of interpretation as a superposition. I remember back in elementary school trying to do a book report on "through the looking glass
and what Alice found there" by Lewis Carol. So many possible interpretations that unless you share the same reasoning as the teacher who is going to
grade the report, your interpretation may sound like nonsense. No one agrees on what the chess board symbolizes. The Beatles sang about the mysterious
train and god forbid we talk about the Walrus and the Carpenter in Parochial school etc.
The same kind of things happen here on the ATS threads. You may have a single thread with 10 participants that appears to read differently for each
contributor. Reading back through the posting historys each observation you make about a former post may change the meaning of their current post or
even the entire thread. That may be why the ATS policy requires a period of participation before building threads of your own.
Maybe it is similar to the stabilization process of the Milsat atomic clocks?
After a similar stabilization process here on ATS I saw thread authors having separate conversations with three or more correspondents each reading
from a different paradigm. If you were to capture the text that was actually being read differently at each of the three readers monitors it would
Grep the same! So there is another example of superposition where a shared environment can yield markedly different results depending on the readers
An image springs to mind of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Maybe the possibility matrix is similar, where a one to many relationship lets you
decide which "child holds the rose".
Then of course there is the even simpler example of the invention of the printing press causing the earth to become a sphere and travel around the
sun. Before the "cut and paste" proof that books provided many farmers might simply look out over their pond and say its flat so the rest of the
Earth must be flat else somebody on the edge might fall off. Of course to a sea mariner that used moon cycles to keep track of dates, the curved
shadow of the Earth on the moon appearing opposite the setting sun would have been a dead give away even thousands of years earlier but who needed to
argue. The mathematics that calculated planetary position for navigational purposes worked fine even with a flat earth as long as the planets
reversed their motions periodically in epicycles.
So before the advent of the printing press in the mid 1400's the shape of the entire planet along with its motion around the sun was a superposition
with some people believing the Earth was flat and others who needed to know believing it was round. A similar situation is occurring today with
quantum mechanics, its currently need to know and most people don't.
