We all are taught that humans have 5 senses, but then we learn that there are more.

I am trying to list them.

1. A sense of taste
2. A sense of Smell
3. A sense of touch
4. A sense of hear
5. A sense of See
6. A sense of Balance
7. A sense of accelleration


What can you add to the list?

How about the sense of consciousness?

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.
A mind untouched by thought...the end of knowledge.

A "sense of humor" ?

Regrettably, some people do not seem to have it.  :passifier:

Maybe a sense of impending danger?

or a sense of right and wrong.

I don't know how to define sense at the moment, just compiling a list :)  then maybe we can discuss which ones are real or not.

What about know when you have a sudden urge to look around and you lock eyes with someone who was obviously staring at you? It happens to me all the time!

Don't know if that would count though, as it probably is not varified or repeatable.

I think the word sense is overused here. A sense of balance, is a combination of Sight, Hearing and touch

A sense of right or wrong isn't a sense like touch, it is more philosophical.  One could argue it is a thought, which by Buddhist standards is what the mind senses.

Senses are physiological means of providing data for perception.

"We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have." - H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond" Published 1934

I think fear would be a reaction, not a sense.....
