The Five Senses


The ability to visually see, to auditory hear, to distinguish between the four tastes bitter, salty, sour, and sweet, and to physically feel things with either the contact of the body or the emotional bearings are what help to make up the human experience in our period of time in this dimension and realm on the planet Earth. The five senses, as they are commonly referred to, help offer humans with the means to explore their surroundings in a way much indescribable to the explanation of the scientific community’s constant questioning for why. For reasons unbeknownst to us, the existence of such phenomenon has spurred much debate and commentary from humans throughout the ages. It is speculated that the answer to all of our answers will surely be answered during our final hour as the light of the soul departs from the physical body. Whatever one chooses to believe, or not to believe for that matter, the consensus seems, in part, to amount to be categorized as unexplainable.

Have you have taken the time out to notice that the five senses are taken for granted and yet severely prized? For example, when an individual is born healthy with all of their allocated body parts, and is able to function normally without the aid or help of an outside external force, the parents may be the ones overjoyed with the occasion. The newborn, on the other hand, is unaware of their surroundings and is totally dependent on not only their ability to naturally function, but that of the care and love of the parents and medical staff at the hospital responsible for looking over the child prior to being discharged to his/her caregivers. As the child grows older, he/she will have come to the realization of various experiences in life, which will ultimately live an impact or mark on the child. And, if an unfortunate circumstance were to strike at the growing child, such as the losing of his/her vision or hearing, the child must then adapt in making changes in the way they are to continue to experience life. In this case, learning Braille or sign language would be taught to accommodate the child in their growing development. When we view those individuals that are labeled “defective,” “retarded,” or “disabled” the mere sight of being confrontation with such is enough to send judgment into the hearts and minds of the general public. Some cruelly make jokes and laughs of the situation while other look away. In the end it all amounts to the same—being uncomfortable with the fragility of life.

In essence, the five senses, as they are commonly referred to, help offer human with the means to explore their surroundings in a way much indescribable to the explanation of the scientific community’s constant questioning for why. The answer simply put is that no one has all of the answers, and no one ever will. If such were the case, the weight of bearing such information, or rather, of such insight could be used to either enrich or destroy humanity. Like the constant attacks individuals pile upon one another throughout the span of the day, the liberty to make oneself a critic or judge rests in that individual’s overall intention for good or evil.
