What is in the way of OP's "direct" experience is the notion of a "world" that can be directly experienced without the interference of consciousness.  The world is not something that exists "on the other side" of consciousness.  Objective/external dichotomies are insufficient and misleading.  The only way to obtain any vestige of a "direct" experience is, wait for it............... Now! :)

I've never been able to get any philosopher to explain exactly how one would directly experience and observe reality without the use of a biological apparatus designed/evolved for the purpose of experiencing and observing reality.

My senses detect that you are back.

where the fuck have you been, and where are the Goddamned pancakes?

My powers were needed elsewhere, but with the current illness of you and the country, I figured it was time come back. The pancakes are returning at subluminal velocity, so they're still a bit behind me.

Oh, and there are many, many excellent modern philosophers, most of whom have been trained in one of the philosophical disciplines we call "sciences".
