I would almost certainly not perceive that linga-like thing the same as a
Hindu would.

But the notion that different people might possibly perceive the same object
differently presupposes the existence of objective reality - otherwise we
won't have any the same object, nor would the non-sameness of our perceptions
have any meaning.
