I think we are ratholing here. The point of contention has become the objective experience.
James does not apparently subscribe to it; the physicists do, perhaps due to their training,
while George and Russell have balanced between subjective and objective ('1st and 3rd person').

I do believe one needs an objective framework (math, logic) against which concepts can be judged
valid or invalid. Concepts such as that expressed by "a dropped object falls under gravity."
