Many top physicists do know the facts
It is the rest of science, media and the world who do not want to listen to what they are saying.
Many individual physicists and scientists do believe that mind can form matter, but the official scientific establishment as a whole does not want to admit it. There is a reason why.
Early scientific instruments could not measure consciousness or quantum activity. Scientists could not prove or disprove anything about consciousness, and so they eventually assumed consciousness had nothing to do with bottom-rung reality, without proving it did not. Eventually science as a whole took the official stance that consciousness had nothing to do with bedrock reality.
The worldview taught by established educators, and taken for granted by society, the legal and medical establishment and media, is based on the consensus that comes from the scientific establishment rather than individual physicists.
