Quantum entanglement describes a phenomenon that has not yet been subject to a comprehensive scientific exposition. But even the direct effects of gravity have not been fully explored relating to the phenomenon. Gravity itself is puzzling given that direct observation shows changes in gravitational field have instantaneous effect.
Thus, if you consider that the closest distance between two points (or two "particles") is a straight line given the context of three dimensions, with greater spatial dimensions a better understanding of how force (and particles) can interact apparently simultaneously is an elegant and cohesive explanation. One that fits not only for quantum entanglement but also for the nature of gravity itself (and which is concordant with the fact that gravity is such a "weak" force in the three spatial dimensions we can directly observe; most of gravity's field effect likely exists in (a) higher spatial dimension(s)).
The "ground of being" that you describe is thus more likely to be just another means of describing the existence of one or more higher spatial dimensions.
Please excuse me if this is difficult to understand as I am not a scientist.
By "simple transcendentalism" I mean the socialization phenomenon where natural behaviour and effects are described in a manner than can neither be proven nor disproven in a logical manner and/or with a rational basis. Philosophy itself fits into this category.

Like Eckermann I find Tam's essay interesting but more from the effect that it helps substantiate observations that belief in ultimate reality is an epistemological issue.
We are all fortunate to be living in a time when mathematics (when used as the language of science) is able to give us a glimmer of what marvels await our awakening. It should be no surprise to any layperson that formulating a "ground of being" is far more palatable than considering that questions of entangled particles exhibiting non-local behaviour would better be explained in the mathematical probability of additional spatial dimensions.
I cannot help but feel that it is an indictment of existing educational systems that so many people in contemporary times lean toward understanding of ultimate realities through simple transcendentalism.
