All these phisicalists considerations are extremely interesting, but
we can not fall in the temptation to consider them an exhaustive

things occurring in the external reality, when really perceptions
happens in the mind. In the mind resides all that we can know about
reality. And the mind is not a neutral, objective device whose notion
of existence is a yes/no switch. The human mind is a tool of survival
for which existence is much wider than the phisical concept of
existence. For humans the existence of the Moon is beyond doubt. What
is debatable is the existence of water on it, or in the past, if it
was made of Chess. Note that water and chess have survival values.
Never anyone hoped that the moon was made of debris.
I just wanted to warm that at the human scale (considering man as the
measure of things), considering what really is worth, phisical
considerations have little importance when confronted with the concept
of existence, meaning and truth. These concepts like others, are
handled in our minds not by phisical, equational or logical
considerations, but by survival values, most of the times
unconsciously, and these survival values depend on how strong the
social group becomes with these concepts (social capital). becaluse
the mind creates the reality, we must study this reality of the mind,
without pretending to reduce this to a physicalist simplifications,
because, in this case, we would be out of syinc with the reality in
which we live.
