I suspect that the details of consciousness and perception and cognition
ARE relevant to physics, in ways that we have not yet understood.
Specifically, I suspect that the same "archetypal algebras" appear in both
psychology and physics,
and that this fact is not unconnected with the idea that the objective world
is the "sum" of every entity's subjective perceptions of it.
