Default Have All Quad Headlights On?

Is it possible? I have an 89 VNP with quad headlights, and love the way the four lights look on at night, but that is only possible when I switch to high beams. Is there a tweak I can do to achieve this but not blind oncoming drivers?

A very rough idea that came to mind was to split the low beam cable to both headlights. That is, the cable that connects to the low beam, splitting it so it also extends and connects to the high beam, resulting in the high beam cable not being used. Normally, when the high beam is selected, the high beam goes on and the low beam gets a bit brighter. My stupid thinking is if I split that low beam cable to both headlights, I can still switch to high beam since that cable normally gets brighter when it's selected. But not sure how the laws of electricity work. If I split, and lets say the normal watts for the low beam is 50w, will both headlights receive same wattage so putting out same brightness? Or does it distribute between the two, making each one less that 50w, let's say 25w each. If so, then it that might be enough to not blind drivers. I hope this made some sense.
