What is coenesthesis?[edit]

"Coenesthesis" redirects here but there is no mention of that term in the article, not even an indication if it is a synonym or merely a vaguely related concept.--Lieven Smits (talk) 20:44, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Misuse of term 'animal'[edit]

Humans are by definition animals (we are in the kingdom Animalia), but the opening paragraph seems to use the word 'animal' in a way that excludes humans in error. "Animals also have receptors to sense the world around them, with degrees of capability varying greatly between species. Humans have a comparatively weak sense of smell, while some animals may lack one or more of the traditional five senses." 209.202.60.193 (talk) 23:29, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Emanation and Reason behind these specific Senses[edit]

My question is unbiased in any form.

I am interested in the "origin" of the five senses. By this I don't mean who created it.

By this I mean to ask is that why these five senses emanated for us to interact with the world around us.

My question is not cryptic. It's a question after all.

How did it arrive to being these known five senses through evolution? And why these five? I cant seem to find any answer for it.

It's wondrous how it was thought of. Sight, Smell, Sound, Taste and Touch. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 113.193.80.67 (talk) 17:31, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
