so, are you saying that physicality stems from itself?

And what, precisely, constitutes "reality" (good luck with that one)??

I, and the rest of humanity would love to know what those "fundamental
mechanics" actually are. Because it would have to involve something beyond the mechanics of mere physicality.

One might also interperet that statement as being every bit as cognitively delusional.
I know that a lot of people would prefer to shoehorn Consciousness into a tidy little physical box. But there's just no way it's gonna fit without a lot of drastic trimming.

"Objectivity" is merely a cognitive perception of subjective experience - and all
experience is essentially subjective. In other words, "objectivity" merely represents various points of general
agreement among multiple subjective views of basically the same thing. Beauty, for instance, is something that is more readily perceived from a higher state of awareness, than from a lower one. In other words, with a high degree of awareness, it's possible to see beauty and perfection in the most extreme scenarios imaginable.
As I've said elsewhere on this topic, it's all about awareness and perception.
