The material world is what I experience with my senses — touch, sight, smell, taste, and sound. It includes anything that comes into existence, exists, and then ends. That includes things around me, and my body.
There are some incredible things around us in nature, and as humans, we’ve achieved great things. I experience joy and amazement looking at these material things, and what we have understood about this material world. This includes achievements such as engineering marvels and space travel, and our collective understanding of how material systems operate, e.g. economic theory, management theory, etc.
