A rejection of Experiential Metaphysics

On many occasions, I have espoused my experiential metaphysics. It starts from these gives:
a) All experiences are real experiences.
b) Our experiences are the only way we know the world.

therefore:
c) We must rely on our experiences for our source of proof.
d) I can prove pretty much anything that I've experienced.

There is a consequential problem in this: I've ceased most critical thought regarding my experiences as a result. That philosophy explains everything, and makes everything explainable. And I think from that, I've had a growing maliase. Everything has been rendered explicable, accountable- it is an all encompassing, hole-free philosophy.

It stagnates, and doesn't change or grow, and in return, I stagnate and fail to change and grow.

It is for these reasons, that I formally reject that outlook. I don't want to be able to account for everything. I want to be confused, puzzled, lost. I want to look at questions without having answers.
