sensory perceptions


The sweetness of a ripe mango,
the sight of a Monet painting,
the smell of a freshly cut lawn,
the texture of gritty sandpaper,
the timbre of an alto saxophone.

The human body is capable of judging the elements around it through its five senses. Information gathered through the taste buds, eyes, nose, skin and ears is processed by the brain, which can then make sense of the surrounding environment, and then for us, qualified by our common Western standpoint, the definition of reality is based on these physical perceptions.

"The world we inhabit is a realm of the senses and the intellect, and to that extent it is formed and conditioned by our psychophysical organization."
