Agreed, and it is more complex than a naive interpretation might suggest.
Jordan Peterson (UoT Psych) has some great perspectives on the role of experience in the broader social context in selecting social forms that capture practical wisdom (in a sense).
The ways in which the many levels of systems within us, many of which involve sets of deep neural networks, create understanding and concepts from experience is itself fascinating.
And certainly, we need to let reality itself be the ultimate arbiter of our understandings. And we need to do that within the context of appreciating that we have no direct access to reality, as it now seems clear that all we can ever consciously experience is the subconsciously created model of reality that is the object of our subjective experience. Understanding the many levels of heuristics and systems involved can help in the interpretation, and there can be no absolute certainty. Uncertainty reigns!
