The Mundane or Material Physical Reality includes both the objective physical known to science, and a number of more subtle realities.    More refined planes of Physical reality represent grades of "elemental" or "devic" consciousness that effect us in subtle ways.  These are also beings that are involved in the kingdoms of nature.  The pertain to the physical, but that aspect of the physical that is intuitive, rather than "objective"

There are however so many different realities even here that it would be impossible to describe them all.  (or even to describe to describe the tiniest fraction).  Science fiction, philosophies, fantasy, paranormal studies, and so on, sometimes impinge on these other realities.
