Your assumption of "underlying primitive physical reality" puts you
in the line of believers. It is not necessary to make such assumption
to build predictive theories to model/describe the observations.

True.  But it's not necessarily an assumption.  You can look at it as a metaphysical 
inference: an answer to the question, "Why do these models seem to work so well at 
describing our intersubjective agreement?"
