Great thinking and ideas. Your SSS is nicely consistent with my work and our previous discussions. I also like your elliptical Wheeler 'reality loops' idea in response to QM's 'renouncement of common-sense representations'. (A quote from paper you cited).
But we're both realists. If a common sense cause for all the 'weird' experimental findings emerged Wouldn't you, like me, prefer it? Those findings are based on unproven assumptions so are actually only interpretations!
So consider; A builder (Wheeler-Aspect gmb) fits a round loft window with the pivot vertical not horizontal so wind can opens & shut it & rain enters at some angles = damp ceiling patch (2 days later), small OR large, with little correlation to how much rain. They get roofer & plumber to check carefully but no cause is found. They tell you and the client it's a spooky unphysical effect with no 'common sense' cause.
Would you take their word for it? I suggest not! I didn't either. I went to the loft & experimented by rotating the round frame 180o, and indeed to all angles. I found when open to the east with an east wind & rain it poured in! But not with a WEST wind! - but if rotated again, it did! Then at 90o it either poured in all the time, or if reversed not at all!!
I told the builders but they called me a crackpot as I don't believe nature's weird!
That's exactly what's happened with QM. The experiment in my essay confirms it, being the first to account for ellipticity on all 3 rotational axes, and complementarity between two REAL states over 90o. Absolutely all weirdness evaporates, My 'delayed choice' fig needs no backward causation, it's just an error assuming particulate photon energy and just ONE path. It's just that ellipses only reveal max energy at one orientation!
Do read my essay carefully and see if you understand it. One thing's certain, to the builders of QM I'll be a crackpot, so you may be the only one!
(Remind me to tell you about my recent 'tidewind' finding with some of the Delft lads).
