Objectivity is an abstract game played by subjects.
I am all for examining the meaning of our different concepts. It seems to me that our concepts are understood according to our science, our traditions and our intuition. Every now and then small changes in some area, science in this case, can have implications to how we justify our belief in certain concepts and specifically what that belief is.
I speak about "quantum events", but all the while I am keeping in mind that there is no quantum world and another world that humans can percieve. What we percieve is
the quantum world, and when we do, "reality" is what happens. But perception is not a result of it, it is a part of making it happen.
But my initial motive for asking if consciousness could be thought of as a force of nature was a need to place these considerations in relation to other ideas such as evolution theory and theories about the origin of the universe. If consciousness is an intrinsic part of reality, but physical reality existed before consciousness, that seemed to me to be problematic. I have come to realize that that may have been only because I was operating with the naive realistic notion of linear time.
As I see it now, there is no reason why physical reality should have existed before consciousness. Perhaps we can say that reality is only as physical as consciousness can be aware.
