The functioning nervous system has no need to be aware of its PRODUCTS, just as the PRODUCTS have no need to be aware of its functioning.

Hm. You’ve given me much food for thought, and I appreciate you taking the time to find a key phrase to pull out and expand upon that resonates within the structure you prefer to use.

I have a problem, however.
“With objective agency being the primary or monad condition, we can say that subjectivity is being cognitively ignorant of the underlying objective agency that makes up our consciousness. Subjectivity is a lack of understanding of Self. In monist materialism this is referred to as “eliminative materialism”.”

I do not believe that the Subjective’s IGNORANCE of the underlying physical system and its manner of function NECESSITATES Elimination of the validity of the Subjective.

Why?

I see an underlying assumption laying dormant that is unspoken.

The underlying assumption that I see here is that the OBJECTIVE is _capable_ of entirely explaining the SUBJECTIVE.

I don’t believe it can.

The functioning nervous system has no need to be aware of its PRODUCTS, just as the PRODUCTS have no need to be aware of its functioning.

In short, the objectivity is functionally ignorant of the subjectivity in its entirety, just as the subjectivity is functionally ignorant of the objectivity in its entirety.

I see them as co-dependent reinforcing systems.

I don’t believe they function in a balanced fashion either. There can certainly be a great difference between the two. I don’t believe functioning consciousness is required for the Universe to exist but for us to have an accurate model of reality, we must include the subjective aspects of consciousness for it is with this very consciousness that we are perceiving the world with and to not credit it with validity in the majority of cases [there are always exceptions like illusions and such] it is, nevertheless, GENERALLY reliable; it must be for we depend on it to even come up with objective descriptions of reality.
