Background

A description of the experience

Aristotle, Metaphysics IV, 1009 b 7

And again, many of the other animals receive impressions contrary to ours; and even to the senses of each individual, things do not always seem the same. Which then, of these impressions are true and which are false is not obvious; for the one set is no more true than the other, but both are alike. And this is why Democritus, at any rate, says that either there is no truth, or to us at least it is not evident.”.
