Stuart, my brothah, I can't tell for sure if you are a Baha'i or not, but, since you refer to the Faith often as "our Faith", I assume you are. I only have one point to make. The fact that you hold these speculative sciences, which amount mostly to psuedosciences under the general label of "Scientific Theology" and similar catchy phrases, to be important points of discussion is evidence that you are having trouble comming to terms with the choice you have made to open your heart to Baha'u'llah. This process includes opening your heart to the Master, the Guardian and the Universal House of Justice. This is first and foremost a matter of faith. You have to first believe that this is the divine channel established by Baha'u'llah and that Baha'u'llah is the Supreme Manifestation of God. If you have doubts about this then I suggest you do some soul searching and make a decision based on your ultimate conviction. Otherwise your just gonna go round and round in circles wondering why your personal philosophy doesn't match God's. If I'm way off and you're not actually a Baha'i I would still reduce this advice to the same general theme, which is that truth, in this day, is tested in application. If it works it's true. If not, why waste time dwelling on it? There are so many important things that need to be addressed in this day and we shouldn't get caught up in questions concerning psychic phenomena, new age debates ect.
