If you could have an extra sense, what would it be?
We all have our own senses, but we don’t think much about them until they’re not working as they should. Some people are born without one of their senses, while others lose one to disease or injury. For those who are missing an ability, it can be difficult to imagine what it’s like to have that sense present in your life, but when you think about it, we all make assumptions about how the world must look and feel to someone with another sense.
Humans have a relatively poor sense of smell when compared to other animals. But what if we could choose to have an extra sense? Here are six smells we wish we could experience
1) the ocean (from across the room),
2) dark cherry (by licking your wrist),
3) salt water taffy (through your nose),
4) freshly baked bread (from across the room),
5) mountain air in summertime (from across the room), and
6) fresh cut grass after rain. 7) food that's been cooking for hours.
8) cinnamon toast with icing on top.
9) a campfire burning at night while drinking hot cocoa.
There are a lot of things we can learn from animals. They can teach us about loyalty, friendship, and how to live in the moment. Animals also have a unique way of looking at the world that can help us see things from a different perspective. Here are three things we can learn from animals -Elephants mourn their dead by touching the bones with their tusks.
-Birds flock together when they're feeling threatened or scared because it makes them feel safer.
-Lions take care of the weakest member of their group because it's their responsibility to do so. -Whales sing as they migrate to keep track of each other.
-Giraffes are able to reach leaves that other animals can't because of their long necks. -Orcas use echolocation to find prey in the dark depths of the ocean.
-Marmots will rub themselves against trees until their fur falls off and then grow new fur for protection against predators.
-Dogs' sense of smell is over 100 times stronger than ours which is why they're often used for bomb detection.
5 New Senses We'd Love To Have
1. A sense that would let us know when someone is lying to us would be amazing. No more being duped by friends, family, or co-workers!
2. Being able to see in the dark would be a game-changer. Imagine never having to fumble for a light switch again or worry about walking into something in the middle of the night.
3. Being able to sense when we're in danger would be incredibly useful. There's nothing worse than not knowing if you should stay put or run for your life. 4. Tasting colors sounds like a dream come true, but it could also be overwhelming with all the variety out there - maybe it's better to stick with just one new sense! 5. The ability to hear animals and other people's thoughts sounds really cool but can you imagine how confusing that would get after a while?
There are a few different ways to answer this question. Some people might want to choose a theoretical extra sense, like the ability to see sound waves or to know when someone is lying. Others might want to choose a real medical condition that gives them a new sense, like echolocation or the ability to feel magnetic fields. And others might have their heart set on a sense they already have, but one they would love to be better at. For example, taste or smell may not be as strong as some other senses for many people, so they would want to develop it more in order to use it more effectively in their daily lives. Another possibility is time, which we all have access to but only a limited amount of awareness with. We could always take up meditation and mindfulness practices, which can help us become more aware of the passage of time and how we're spending it. But there's another way to do it: the practice of taking stock of our lives, by sitting down and reflecting on what we've accomplished thus far and what we still need to do. As Howard Thurman once said, No man has ever measured, even guessed, how much life he has wasted. If you're reading this blog post right now, then you're using your sense of sight--and that means you're living life fully.
