mamoru: I thought the real "sixth sense" is the sense of balance and body position.
Ivo Shandor: Or sensing temperature on the skin (which doesn't require physical contact so it doesn't count as touch).
DammitIForgotMyLogin: mamoru: I thought the real "sixth sense" is the sense of balance and body position.Proprioception.
Ishkur: Of course we have a sixth sense. We also have a seventh and eighth. There are, like, 20 senses now.

mamoru: It's not like the heat sensors in vipers which actually detect thermal IR radiation.
Khellendros: Since there aren't five senses to begin with, talking about a "sixth" as if it's new is pretty silly. Sight (technically two senses in one), hearing, taste, smell, pressure, temperature, equilibrioception, chemoreception, and about half a dozen others, depending on how you slice them.Talking about your "five senses" is analogous to talking about the four elements that make up matter. It's quite outdated and incorrect at this point in our understanding of human physiology.
ArcadianRefugee: Except the universe isn't made of air, earth, fire, and water. But the senses can easily be lumped into five basic categories
