The Sixth Sense
In the movie “The Sixth Sense,” a talented boy, Cole, can see and talk to the dead. Child psychologist Malcolm Crowe helps Cole face his delusions, until he makes an astonishing discovery.
The ending leaves the audience completely stunned. You can check out the trailer here.
Cole’s sixth sense was talking to ghosts.
But how many senses do we really have?
I remember learning about 5 senses as a kid: touch, smell, sight, taste, and hearing.
Turns out, we have arguably over 20 senses! Some, like proprioception, help us understand where our body is in space. Proprioception helps us touch our fingers to our nose, even if our eyes are close.
If our understanding of something as basic as our senses can change so quickly, what other false assumptions might we have?
More importantly, in a rapidly changing world, how do we make sure we’re always up to date?
Thanks for caring!
