Very interested in knowing why you say "more plausible." I'm not being frivolous, I really want to know.

The delayed choice results suggests that the photon has hidden variables that make it appear as a particle when there is no beam splitter, and makes it appear as a wave when there is a beam splitter.
This seems more plausible than the idea that by adding the beam splitter the photon goes back in time and becomes a wave.
Cheers,

PS. Very, very interesting stuff. David Bohm has suggestions in his book 'Causality and Chance in the New Physics' which address this issue. Maybe we should all read his book and then discuss?
