Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The fact that you evaluate probabilities is your own brain experience, with no effect whatsoever on the underlying reality you're trying to assess.

Of course. But it does mean that we cannot meaningfully say to know that The Truth exists or what it is, because we can only know the world in probabilistic terms. Even if The Truth is out there, there is no way to identify it as being The Truth under a Bayesian epistemology. And that's not a bug, that's a feature.
