All you have is sensation. How can you be sure anything exists outside it? Why do we assume we experience a thing?

You responded by ignoring the content of the post you're supposedly replying to.

No, you don't "have sensation" - that's an assumption you're making.

You may believe you sense things, but how do you know that the semblance of sense isn't wholly artificial? Isn't simply programed into you, or that you're directed to sense those things absent any other external motivation?

You can't half do these things - you can't declare all knowledge suspect then simply draw a line and state you'll suspend that suspicion for factors you decide like 'sensation'.

The rabbit-hole you've found for yourself has no bottom.

Of course, the rabbit-hole happens to be your own navel, so it should be easy to extricate yourself from it.
