Just because you choose to bask in your scientific ignorance and follow every pseudo-scientific flight of fancy with uncritical gusto doesn't mean that science has not made leaps and bounds in the last century.
The basics, including the mathematical models, of the Copenhagen interpretation have barely changed in 90 years. There are no rival theories. There are no professional scientists who offer any dissent against this interpretation. You claim that scientists love to be proven wrong. But that has not been the case for the fundamentals of quantum theory at all. Modern theory piles math on top of existing theory. It never replaces existing theory.
You have no idea if my ideas are scientific or not. But what is evident is that you will casually resort to this kind of slander based on even the most meagre sign that an individual is not entirely accepting of current theory. You show exactly how tolerant modern physics is of being 'proven wrong' because you won't even process any kind of dissent.
But you cant say that the Copenhagen interpretation is the ONLY ideas for QM. It was the most popular and probably the most complete, but most serious physicists know it has to be flawed. We know it in our gut. There is a mechanism that collapses the wave function, we just dont know what it is. The universe is there when we dont look, we just dont understand wave particle duality to know what the universe looks like in waves/probability.
