experience before reason

You must have experience before reasoning is useful.
Reasoning leads to mutually incommensurate outcomes and antinomies: it is a patch over a tricky piece of reality.

To govern the direction (and hence the usefulness) of "reasoning" we need to look to the fabric of reality, instead of being captured by the delights of assumptive theories.
