Questioning how proprioception (internal perception which tells us what is going on in our bodies) is related to exteroception (external or sensory perception, everything outside of our bodies), leads to new interpretations of how the knowledge of something could be empirical (a posterioi, or verifiable by observation and experience) rather than knowable (a proiri, or independent of experience like mathematics, and deduction from pure reason). Debating the validity of both scientific and personal interpretations as valid means for knowing.
Everything above, and everything within provides us with the desire and the means to learn more.
