Thank you for posting on this fascinating topic. I'll read you paper when time permits and offer you my view.
Hopefully, other members will also participate.
This ontology, as I understand it, is that "the probability density of future potentialities or contingencies could be influenced by our thoughts and prayers...[and] within this [ontology], all things are interconnected affording an opportunity for synchronicity, the law of attraction, and the value of intercessory prayer to also be explained."
To reach and support this plausible ontology, Jon cites various authorities in the fields of Islamic research and modern physics (especially notions from string theory). Whether one agrees with this plausible ontology and cited literature are for one alone to judge. It is my humble opinion that Jon's paper does provide some food for thoughts and has some good insights.
However, the doctrinal disputes between Shia and Sunni should be spelled out (summarized) for the readers in the paper since many readers are not scholars on Islam nor read the book "The Muslim Creed" by A. J. Wensinck. Further, how the scientifically plausible ontology is to solve these doctrinal disputes should also be discussed.
