Wave structure of Matter is basis for all knowledge?  What is WSM?

I believe it is absurd to believe that Theoretical Physics relates directly to

Human existence even if they find a "Theory of Everything," and I do not

see that it relates directly to Buddhism and Eastern Traditions???

The Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) is a current theory being put forth that explains how everything in the universe came from and behaves like waves.  It is a similar explanation to the Wave Theory for light, as opposed to the particle theory for light.  The wave structure of matter theory treats everything according to the way waves behave.  There are two types of waves, mechanical waves and electromagnetic waves.  The mechanical waves require the use of a medium, which is a substance that allows the transfer of energy.  Electromagnetic waves need no medium and actually work better in the absence of one.  Sound is an example of a mechanical wave, while light is an example of an electromagnetic one.

As far as the basis for all knowledge, that is debatable.  It depends on who you ask.  Mr. Haselhurst is probably sold on the wave structure theory, while some of his critics may have their faith in other explanations.  As with all theories of credibility, the wave structure of matter has it's strong points, but it probably has weak ones as well.
