Inductive truth is reached through experience.

The problem is that I perceive a world and reach my conclusions based on my less than completely reliable perceptions.

My conclusions are no more than a probability estimate based on my previous experiences.

You (we) most likely have no control of the "underlying truth", so enjoy the ride.

If you are flying in an airplane, your reality is that you are flying in an airplane thousands of feet in the air.

You cannot perceive the aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, electrical engineering, and mechanic Joe's abilities that all support that you are flying in an airplane thousands of feet in the air. Nor can you control any of that.

So Enjoy the ride!
