You are completely missing that any kind of perception is only something an "observer" can do.
I'm not missing it (I've seen you commenting about it at another thread), it's just that I don't see how it's relevant, nor why "being an observer" is something that can't happen exclusively within the confines of the physical world as currently understood.
I find it rather funny that you think a very prominently physical phenomenon ("collapsing the wave-function") requires something from outside the realm of the modern physics paradigm.
(Physical matter cannot supply an "observer", as observers can and will collapse the wave-function.)
You keep repeating that impossibility as your core argument, but I don't take it as a given ("an axiom") as you do, and it doesn't follow from the laws that explain the collapse of the wave-function. Basically you're saying "an observer cannot be physical matter because the collapse of the wave-function requires something that is not physical", but don't explain why it requires something non-physical.
It is true that current physics doesn't understand the interaction between micro and macro levels (i.e. what happens when you add what you call an "observer" to the mix), but I can't agree with your jumping to the conclusion that this interaction requires something that can't be explained with configurations of matter and energy. Under that point that you highlight as essential, an "observer" is "whatever causes a wave-function to collapse in a physical system". There is nothing requiring this "whatever" to be a form of consciousness, just that it's something external to the system studied at a quantum level.
Nothing regarding quantum physics makes me think that my consciousness requires something other than an emergent phenomenon of my physical body. If that makes me a p-zombie, I'm a p-zombie with a very rich inner life. ;-)
Perception requires awareness (not necessary self-awareness), and that is, again, not something physical matter is known to be able to do.
When I turn on the room's light, my cellphone's light sensor detects it and instructs the screen to dim the bright. You can say that my phone is aware of the environment's light.
How is that different in essence to what my brain does in my body, other than being able of much more complex processes? How do you know that what I sense as self-awareness is impossible to be the collection of those physical processes, and that I sense all of it because of - well, because I'm inside this body that is doing them?
