#5: People Have More Than Five Senses
Our entire lives, we are told that we have five senses: smell, touch, taste, sight, and hearing. As mentioned below, these were the senses recorded by Aristotle. He wasn’t wrong; he just wasn’t looking at the larger picture. Think about it for a moment. When you ride a roller coaster, you have more sensations than just what you can see, hear, and touch.
The main issue is that touch doesn’t encompass most of our body’s feelings. Pain isn’t a touch sensation unless you have a cut or bruise. Time does not fall in any of the original categories. True, it’s less reliable than most of our other senses, but take the next few days to consider what time it is and check yourself against the clock. You might be surprised!
