As for methodology in art; it usually is a teacher/student relationship. All arts could be classified as apprenticeships. It is the choices made between teacher and student that clarifies the mental inspiration for any project.
However, back to the OP, unless you can show otherwise, there are no objective methods comparable to the scientific method, which apply to Art, Philosophy or Religion.

As for the example you gave above, I suspect that because the speed of light is fixed it is because the "Domain" in which it operates, the physical universe, makes it suspiciously ordered like an Order of Nature; something controlled as if the stable nature of light is "intentially" placed in our Reality.
Imagine all that if you like, but since zero evidence is available for anything other than that it happened without any mind, purpose, or that it was suspiciously ordered by anything, that is all it is - in your imagination, an imagination in a brain which evolved to be what it is through several billin years of Earth's existence.

Another suspicion I have is about entanglement at far distances as another fixed effect that never veers from it's purpose,
You don't need to have a suspicion about it, you can look to the work already done. No need to imagine it since it seems that scientists have already done that and, with the help of technology designed and made by humans, have some objective evidence about it. They will not be able to announce a Theory yet since it will need more tests, but even when a Theory is established, it will be open to challenge.

...as though it's behavior is "intentional".
That is anthropomophising - and that's fine, but I think it is far more interesting to see clearly where this is being done and where it is not.

It is my suspicion that Mind is cautious to let the cat out of the bag gradually, not all at once.
That suspicion is not based on any objective or independent evidence.

This means two things:
Maybe in your opinion, but not in mine.

1. Either the universe is playing a game of hide and seek, meaning that the things we discover about physics is gradual yet consistent. These physical "riddles" in nature are exasperating and some are leaving the science for a philosophical explanation. It is now more of an art than any experiment applied so far.
I think you've got that back to front, but it is a bit difficult to follow or to workout why because of the way you have worded it.
Quote

2. The so called "intention" of these findings infers a methodology of sorts.
You can infer - I don't know whether it is implied - a methodology if you like, but first you have to find a method to provide evidence for the intention and the *mind* behind it.
Quote

"Today you learn This, tomorrow you learn That". It sounds like an apprenticeship of physics intentially ordered by the, as yet, undiscovered "rules" of Nature. Gradually and "methodically" Nature is revealing itself to the earnest seeker of Nature's secrets.
Said 'nature' being a poetic human way of looking at things I think.
Quote

And please don't nitpick my choice of words!!
Why not?!! If you do not want your choice of words or views discussed, or even challenged, then put them on a personal blog where you can control all input.
Quote

I do have "some" idea of the situation in these particular anomalies as being "Suggestive" of a Higher Order in Nature. Mind, as the bartering entity of any search in this complex universe, will have to be given a percentage of credibility in the pursuit of all physical phenomena.
Since 'mind' is simply a word, a sound formed of characters, coined by humans to enable us to talk about the things our brains do, then to give it a power of its own is extremely unscientific and needs a solid back-up of objective evidence to take it any further.
Quote

That is all that is left to explore in the science of experimentation and theory.
I think that is extremely unlikely to be true!
Quote

As long as there are humans doing the tests, there will always be a mind-factor involved, throughout the discoveries of matter and time.
Which is why, of course, the scientific method has been developed - in order to eliminate as far as possible bias, and has so far stood up to the test of time.
Quote

We humans are the platform upon all inquiries of Nature. We must be included into every equation as the "mover and shaker" of all our discoveries. It is our lot to come to realize that every search includes a mental schematic whereby our awareness is crucially entwined into every New discovery of physical manifestation.
I'm not a platform!!
Quote

We ARE HERE TO LEARN EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW,
I only know that is in caps because Synthetic Dave has said 'all caps' before reading each word. Otherwise it sounds the same as if not in caps. We are not here for any reason or purpose, we are here because we are part of an unbroken line of life. Once here, we humans have made our own purposes in order to survive and, if surviving, make the best we can of the life we have.
Quote

and we cannot exclude our intimate participation in every test of material phenomena.
We don't 'participate' in tests unless we choose to do so after the idea, the hypothesis, the experiments, etc have been thought of and devised by us.
Quote

We humans are the whole structure of our ultimate discoveries of Reality.
How about having a go at putting that in clear, plain English. As it is, it is not comprehensible.
[quote[] I said my peace.[/quote]
And do you think it should not be discussed, or challenged, or disputed?
