How many senses do humans have?

17 posts in this topic

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?

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.

A sixth sense that allows us to reach the other reality that we think we do not have access to.

energy is not solid it is just sub atomic particles vibrating at different speeds and different frequencies.

If energy is not solid then there is just a perception of two different realities.

the physical reality we perceive with human eyes

the other reality we perceive with a sixth sense.

We all have access to this reality it is just we have placed limitations on ourselves that make us think we do not have access.

When you let the limitations go anything is possible
