Wittgenstein

No one ever taught me that my hands don't disappear when I am not paying attention to them.

The child learns by believing the adult. The doubt comes after belief.

I learned an enormous amount and accepted it on human authority, and then I found some things confirmed or disconfirmed by my own experience.

Does anyone ever test whether this table remains in existence when no one is paying attention to it?

(On Certainty)
