You both seem to be conflating testing a specific theory with testing a philosphical stance as to where that theory originates (mind or independent reality).
NO. we are brain based. (my assumption and not denied I think) We build and we test our reality using all sorts of experiments. We can never know more about MIR although we can believe in it, various versions of it and most of us do. But the key is to realise we hold beliefs that are generated from our experiences, from our MDR.
