In a nutshell, the Copernican Principle mentioning there is nothing special about human and/or Earth. Regarding “Copernican Principle” applied to Quantum Physics and/or Science in general, IMHO we have at least three actions to avoid “big mistakes” in addressing the next coming of future science as follow :
Our solution is to develop Nature Knowledge Theory (NKT) which is defined as a theory developed and based on adoption to paradigm of “The Universe or the Nature Knowledge is the source and center of Consciousness” rather than “Mind Brain or Human Being (DIKW-driven) is the source and center of Consciousness”. Nature Knowledge Theory (NKT) considering the Universe as an animate and psycho-somatic being. We believed the development of NKT model framework and its derivatives will facilitate the processes on how we will be able to unify general relativity and quantum mechanics toward Theory of Everything (TOE). The basic consideration in using NKT based on simple rational of human living reality, ...” The Universe knows something we don't. And it acts on cosmic scales”.....
To validate NKT model framework as science, we have provided with “minimal requirements” variables of Science needed such as Inverted Paradigm Method (IPM) as their scientific methodology, Knowledge Value (KV) Measurement as KM Metrics and k-constant applied to E = k mc2 as feedback factor to psycho-somatic Universe environment
