With understandings of waves, and wave functions in mind, it is likely that our existence at a set distance from the sun (goldilocks zone) is not just due to heat, but also the allowed time for (flare) wave-cycles to pass with regards to phase and our planets atmosphere, and magnetic field – before interaction with the earth.
This is why specific sized flares will have such an effect on our planet. The timing of its arrival with regard to the present cycle and phase for our own planets field can potentially make or break the interaction. A flare which has a wave amplitude and shape closer to that of the earths overall magnetic field is going to have a greater effect on it, along with the timing of arrival, and point in the cycle in which it began, where for example, two sine waves can either cancel each-other out, or amplify depending on where they are at in their respective wave-cycles when they intersect.
*This indicates that we will find specific ratios for sun to planet size when it comes to inhabitable planets, where there is also a goldilocks ratio for best chances of survival. This all depends on the distance from the sun, and size of the two in comparison.
With regards to Lagrange Points, it is likely that we would be able to prove the wave state of space by measuring changes in the magnetic field, or in wave/spacial structures at one point; as a heavy object, or impactful operation occurs on the opposite side. Affecting the wave on one end should result on the state at the opposite end having a readable outcome after the wave-cycle for the surrounding space has completed/reset its function. Depending on the strength of the interaction, you may also be able to read decay rates if it passes through more than one cycle (just like gravity waves).
So long as the T-handle phenomenon in space isn’t due to mechanical error when exiting the socket, you might also be able to observe opposing timings in the swapping of axis at both Lagrange points, or two points slightly offset in (phase) location. This would show the timing of the wavecycle for earths wave/field. The timing can vary or be influenced depending on secondary factors, just the same as how atomic fields, and atomic groups can be influenced.
Regarding flares, most of it just requires an understanding of phase cancellation, found here:
