I would say I agree 100% with what you say above, but only if you take out
the two instances of "physically." The insertion of that word makes what
would otherwise make sense to me, something which I can't follow.

Could you describe what you mean by "physically" and why you feel it
important to use that word here? That is, could you explain why you say
"physical qualities" rather than "qualities", and "physically real" rather
than "real"?
