According to the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, we have five senses. Buddhist psychology speaks of six saḷāyatana – Aristotle’s 5 plus a sixth, the mind.

Today’s neuroscientists say we have way more than that, possibly as many as 18.

So there’s the opportunity to discover more about how we perceive the world around us, but also to play with each of the more familiar five senses and see where we can expand our interaction with life, the universe, and everything.
