This is something you can say to anyone about anything. It's especially useful when you're losing an argument. The idea is that you can't prove anything because you have no way of knowing if your senses are even correct (yes, like The Matrix). Hopefully the person you're arguing with will forget about what you were just arguing about and think about what you just said. The problem with it is that it makes any argument impossible, so it gets annoying very quickly.

There's no need to softlink to one of those "your radical ideas have already occured to other people"-type nodes, I'm already aware of that.
