Outside these Walls of Ours

Can we ever step outside of ourselves? Experience reality beyond our beings?

I think everyone has to admit that they are limited, by space, knowledge, experience, understanding, etc. Even scientists, I think, should admit that the "laws of science" must be looked at with humility, and be able to admit that, well, maybe we just got it wrong. Take Newton's Laws of Motion, which at the subatomical level have mostly been disputed.

I guess, what I'm trying to say, is that there is nothing that we can experience outside of ourselves. We can try to be objective, but even then, our own understanding of what objectivity is subjectivity.

If your a scientist and you stumble across this, please shed some like on this from your perspective.
