Probability as anti-scepticism

It is not that I do not have doubts, but rather I do not normally behave with doubt about everything. Doubt would immobilise a being if we cannot trust even the footfall of the very next step. We act with trust of the experience that what appeared before is consistent with what is happening now and what will happen next. With high probability, the world remains consistent with our experience and memory. And if the experience is different to previous experience then this experience becomes the norm. That is to say, I am a pattern seeker. And this pattern of being a pattern seeker has not changed.
