Don is a professor of cognitive science at UC Irvine who is proposing something radical yet fully backed by scientific rigor — 

First, you perceive zero percent of reality. You live in an evolutionarily convenient illusion akin to a computer desktop interface. Second, what’s truly real underneath that illusion (and all of our scientific models) is a realm of consciousness populated by what Don calls “conscious agents.”

So, despite how the world appears, no matter what happens at the large hadron colder or what we find peering through the James Webb telescope; what all of it is, at bottom, is consciousness expressing itself.
