Perception of is a part of cultural reality. This is true. But when science discovers new information the only part of reality that changes is the part that was inaccurately percieved. Nothing more changes.
Quantum mechanics does (IMO) not imply that there are multiple realities or no realities. All it can imply is that we do not have full knowledge of what is real. We can percieve unexpected phenomena in the quantum level, and that is real. Understanding the uncertainty will not change what is real, it will only clarify reality for us.
While it is possible that yes, there may be a hidden answer in there, you cannot attribute a 50/50 chance that such a discovery will occur. It may be more like 99/01 or even less.
