Physicalism says that all the facts, including all the phenomenal facts, are metaphysically necessitated by the physical facts. If physicalism is true at the actual world, there is no metaphysically possible world, which is physically identical to the actual world, but different in some other respect. Note that "physicalism" is defined in terms of metaphysical necessity, because everybody should endorse law-like correlations between the mental and the physical, and so can accept supervenience with nomological necessity.
