@OP I am often accused of attempting to reduce the ineffable beauty of human experience down to ‘just’ a bunch of chemical reactions.

I know the feeling. How do we get around this?

Next they'll be accusing you of reducing a beautifully projected coloured light display - and ornate, antique, stained glass windows, to a bunch of photons and filters!! Dummies have not worked out that beauty (and pattern recognition) is in the eye (or brain) of the beholder!
