The statement you are referring to is backed by technology, physic.
I am all ears. What technology and physics?
By changing the effectiveness of the grounding plane (platform or spikes), the transfer of resonance becomes reality where your book-mentored approach might change as well.
Resonance cannot transfer. Mechanical motion can transfer. Sound can transfer. Changing how you couple something to a ground plane can impact the resonance point or size of the resonance by changing effective mass, damping, or spring ratio. There is no transfer of resonance.
Vibrations (mechanical, electromechanical or airborne) establish resonance and clogging of the signal pathways establishing component operational inefficiency.
Resonances do not clog anything in a signal pathway. They may add to the signal as a non-harmonic component, or they may modulate the signal creating harmonic and IM components. They do not clog anything.
