This was part of my study of “sense” and “Time”. The short of it is, this is every scientifically accepted sense related to the neurological system in ANY SPECIES on earth.

 

This was part of my study of “sense” and “Time”. The short of it is, this is every scientifically accepted sense related to the neurological system in ANY SPECIES on earth.I got the information from the Gene Ontology database because I figured, if they’re job is to map something about every life form on the planet, THEY’LL know how to classify the senses and, in fact, they do.

it might be too big for facebook… but the gist of what I wanted to say here is: every one of those neurological systems takes time to work. That time makes a difference, and consequently, eveyrthing is in the past. It’s not that the present doesn’t exist, but it does mean that we really only _can_ know things in a past sense. Even the future is but the past reflected forward. We can’t do much else. Even math can’t overcome it, ultimately.

I see humans as a subset of the life forms on planet earth, one that I’m glad to be. There are a few senses listed there that humans don’t have; but I wondered and still do: What about senses that we *can’t* currently analogize to human systems? We may find ourselves simply unable to see them at all.
