An inspiration for this week‘s posts, and very much fitting the apparent theme, has been Mr. Russell Brand‘s fantastic ‘Under the Skin’ podcast.
I deeply enjoyed listening to episode nr 42(!) with Prof. Barry Smith.
It touches on the multitudes of human senses (ie many more than the 5 that get all the attention), and their fascinating relationship with Consciousness itself.
A highly edumacational listen.
Ep.42 Senses & Consciousness – Beyond The 5 Senses Myth (with Prof Barry Smith)
On Senses (Wikipedia – check the list!)
I especially love the descriptions of specialised human, animal and plant (check the link for a bookily recommendation – will post more on it later) senses.
