If a theory can only explain how 6% of the matter/energy in the universe works then it can't be fundamental.


I don’t see why. That simply does not follow. A theory can be simply incomplete, not advance enough, etc.

When a theory systematically misses some important fact, like physics miss consciousness (without adding more magic), we can suspect it to be not fundamental, but that still does not prove it is not.

Your theory doesn't explain it without "adding more magic" either. You start by assuming that certain computations must instantiate consciousness.
