Brief and simplified discernment to complement the following presentation LIVE: Quantum Physics and the End of Reality | Sabine Hossenfelder, Carlo Rovelli, Eric Weinstein - YouTube. And the scientific quest as a whole:
The role of the observer is not only central to scientists and science rather to all. However, what science meant by observer is based only on or restricted to cognition and experience constructed through the five senses. Furthermore, also implied mainly in the wake state. However, the senses extend to all the human conditions and experience of life and existence or across the human states of being and becoming locally and non-locally in the world such as sleep, dream, transcendence experience, extraordinary senses, and among others such as OBE and NDE experience Another simple way of saying is much of the essential senses are either filtered, inhibited, and excluded from cognition and experience of the world when the nature of reality and truth are constructed.
Objective evidence and empirical need to be based on all senses rather than only with or restricted to the cognition and intellect basing on or constructed through the five senses or outer senses as well as only in the wake state. And which would filter and inhibit all subtle and hidden phenomena and experience or nature' epistemic and ontic of the world not recognizable and realizable with the five senses. Another way of stating is objective evidence should not be confused with objective senses or outer senses only since the essence and nature of being and becoming need to be based on wholeness or all senses.
As a simple illustration, much experience of the world locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond is mainly through the subtle body-mind or real self of the many sentient composite body-mind system. And which is actually objective experience if interpolated, extrapolated, correlated, and analyzed correctly rather than subjective just as the outer senses. Another way of stating is even with the outer senses, new or unknown phenomena and experience before they are considered as normal, comprehensible, and or acceptable; they had to be adapted, adjusted, and corrected until they are considered as relevant. And only then, they became or considered as objective or empirical. Likewise, such process is also with the subtle or inner senses. And just as outer senses, can lead to objective experience and empirical results.
However, in reality and truth, the outers senses for cognition and intellect can only be possible with the subtle body-mind of the many sentient composite. And there are many obvious or clear evidence such as dream, transcendence, naturalness-spiritual, individual-shared OBE, NDE, and death experience when experiencers are not only not awake or the five senses were not used to experience and construct the world. And a more obvious evidence is the physical biologic organic body (and therefore, the physical or outer senses) is longer relevant when the subtle body-mind (i.e. the mind belongs to the subtle body (an analysis Robert and Suzanne Mays - Examining Skeptics' Attempts to Explain Near-Death Experiences - YouTube, and among others such as many OBE experience commonalities). And in an interdependent and interconnected, and intertwined and entangled world, belongs to or part of the Greater Whole since nothing has its own intrinsic inherent independent existence) disentangled froo the many sentient composite body-mind system. However, the subtle or inner senses remained.
A simple way of saying is the outer senses power by the organic physical body are essential to create, nurture, shape, and develop the many sentient composite body-mind system which included the subtle body-mind and inner senses. And means to survive and evolve locally or in the local cosmic environment. However, the subtle body-mind (and therefore, the inner senses) as the real self, is of infinite potentialities of possibilities locally and non-locally. While the motors or processes and mechanisms that facilitated the outer senses will be returned to the local environment (i.e. organic physical body is essential to create, nurture, shape, and develop the real self or subtle body-mind) or essential but non lasting. And as such, it is not only rational but also meaningful and essential to nurture and develop the senses holistically or as whole. And in particularly long lasting real and true senses of essence and nature of being and becoming for individual and collective long lasting benefits and betterment in the known physical world. And beyond potentialities of possibilities.
Another way of stating is the inner senses, just as the outer senses, can be nurtured, developed, and better. However, since they are far more subtle as well as have to navigate subtle and hidden world. And further made difficult by conditions and difficulties of development and living as well as has not been parts of ways of being and becoming in the world; the process and mechanism are not understood, And therefore, neglected as well as compounded by imposed forbidden and hidden knowledge and practices throughout the age. And as such, through the scientific method and skillful means, the senses can converge and integrate since the whole (or all senses) is far greater than the sum of its parts. And "Know Thyself" is how the infinitely infinite can be known through the infinite finite.
