Materialism can never explain consciousness or perception properly, because:

Nothing physical (nothing in spacetime, such as in many theories of consciousness or perception) can be conscious, because mind is not physical, it is is outside of spacetime.

Consciousness is subjective (as any fool can see) and materialism is entirely objective.

This is provably false if you assume mechanism. Matter is a first person plural (subjective) notion. You are still taking for granted Aristotle theology.

Bruno




Consciousness is experience, experience is subjective, and all things subjective require a subject, which is missing from materialism. Consciousness= subject + object = the subjective + the objective.

3) Consciousness is another word for perception.

So far, only Leibniz's idealistic metaphysics can properly explains subjectivity, consciousness, and perception.
