The 5 senses are the cause of all our fun, failures and frustrations. BTW the 5 senses are sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. You must be wondering, this has reached its limit, this is crazy, come on talk some sense……
YOU are kind of right, however it is only when you become crazy that revelations happen and you start thinking freely. You can let your thinking wander freely, you can let go off those invisible fences and boundaries. It is a wonderful experience. If these 5 senses did not work for me everything will be invisible to me. What a crazy notion. It is not crazy let me try to give an example.
If I say car, immediately visual images of various types of cars flash within you. Then if I say Maruti, immediately all other models except that of Maruti stay in the flash. Now among these models of Maruti the very latest or very old models which you have never come across are not seen in the flash.
The above example may not sound or feel very intriguing, but this is what happens every second or less as soon as any of our five senses counter something. Which means that every action that we do are based on the analysis our brain does with the available stored information. That’s a reason why it is so difficult to unlearn something. It is so difficult to change a habit.
The other insight in our above example is that the there is a memory within us that records everything, irrespective of what we like or dislike and also tags them. One more insight, when we are faced with a situation we are almost always presented with the negative and/or frightful and/or painful scenarios!!
The other day I was watching a program on Discovery, wherein they were showing how our brain assumes lot of stuff and a lot of times forces us to read stuff wrongly. I believe this is true with all of our 5 senses.
I will stop for now….
