For example, when looking at this image of this dress, I see a blue and black dress. But not everyone's eyes adjust to the poorly exposed picture the same way, and when the brain white balances the image differently, the result is that some people see a white and gold dress. The result is that people who are relying on their personal experience of what they think they see can disagree vehemently about the truth of the color of the dress, all based on our own unique experience.
But... if you pull the picture into Photoshop, and actually measure the colors variations of the pixels, the result is a unique and an objective answer that we can all agree on. Or, at least, one that we SHOULD all agree on.
Apparently, the truth is the truth, but our experiences of the truth... well, that's something else entirely.
Science, it trumps experience.
