I Have More Than FIVE Senses ?
« on: 18/03/2009 20:59:35 »
Dearest Senseology Experts & Peeps With Some Sense,


There are five senses yes ?

Sight, Smell, Touch, Taste & (cripes !!..I can't think of the fifth one !!)

anyway..here I am using my sense of sight !





Nice eh ?....wasn't such a good program !


My daughty tells me that today in school she was told that there are in fact up to twenty senses !!!..TWENTY !!....no way !!

If there are please tell me about them...oh...and if ewe can enlighten me about the other sense I have forgotten then I would be most grateful (hmm..maybe it's four senses ?)





Thanks


neil
In No Sense-Nonsense ????
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

It depends on what you define as a sense and whether you'd lump some senses together as a single sense or count them as individual senses. Consider touch, for example. You can perceive differences in both pressure and temperature with your fingers. Would you consider the pressure and temperature senses to be two seperate senses, or would you lump them together as part of a single sense?

Even the ability to tell the passage of time might be considered a sense.

Wikipedia has a lot to say about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senses

Hearing Sheepy's Baaa is his 5th sense but we know Sheepy has lost some hearing in one ear.. do you suppose that's why Sheepy left out that very important sense?

Some clever bods who have nothing better to do than sit around thinking about stuff all day consider hunger and thirst to be senses. And how about a sense of balance?

Or a sense of humour  ;D

What about nonsense. Does that count as an extra sense, or maybe that makes no sense?

There are at least nine fairly obvious senses, and a number of others open to debate, depending on how you define them...  see Wikipedia 'Sense' (for some reason this system won't let me post a URL).
