It is more than mere philosophy. The symbol grounding problem is one of the
central challenges in AI. This is why Ben Goertzel mentioned it as one
of the reasons he thinks an LLM cannot be the core of AGI.

a self of awareness or real intelligence because it has no
physical referents.

 Referents needn't be physical objects, and in fact in the final analysis,
even the referents of physical objects are subjective. I explained
many times, but you don't care to listen.
