5 Senses.....

What are our 5 senses and how important it are they to us?

Vision, Hearing, Smell, Taste, Touch.

Has been wanting to write about the 5 senses but has been lately knocked out by the senseless amount of work as well as medication.


Just to side track abit.....

Medication not for horniess but for 2 bugs which 1 is killed and the other is still staying inside me. I think it will take a while before I will be up and jumping.

One thing, I must thank happyladychat for sharing the care and concern over the blog and others like Serene_Ann, kancana who have also shared the same concern....


Back to the topic.....

The first one that was mentioned was vision....

What is so special of vision? Well.. with out vision, there is no connection with the brain on the visual excitement. But visual impairment does not mean all of the world...

I admire those who lose their sight but gain other sensors to compensate with other means.

A hollow, fluid-filled sphere, the eye is our organ of sight. We only see 1/6th of the eye, most of it lying posterior to the skull. Made of three layers: the fibrous tunic, the vascular tunic, and the nervous tunic, the nervous tunic gives the eye its function. The retina, which detects light, lies in the nervous tunic. Blood supplies the eye through the choroid, which lies in the vascular tunic. The sclera, lying in the fibrous tunic, holds the eye together

Light enters the eye through the cornea, a transparent portion of the fibrous tunic. The ciliary body opens and closes the iris, controlling the amount of light entering the eye. When light hits the retina, that light is translated into a message of vision, which is sent to the brain.

Photoreceptor cells, called rods and cones makes up the retina. Of the two, rods are the most sensitive to light, being able to detect light and transmit that reception to the brain in very dim light. Cones can separate light, telling the brain what color an object is. But cones need much more light to do this.

to be continued with part II

Your blogs have differed alot from the beginning til this. Interesting indeed. Seems like you are fading away too... lost the sparks already...? Maybe just slip away for awhile and then come back again. Refreshed. Something gotta do with your 5 senses.

Blindness to truth and logic can sometimes be scarier than physical sight impairment.

PS. Glad you're back.

Make it your challenge.... turn me ON!!

Hi Serene_Ann,

Hmm.. How I wish you were here to feed me the medication!!

Well.. The bug was[\b] a big one and it took me awhile to kill it.

Hope you have a nice week too.

Hi loreena

There is so much to write about initially as we have lots of well kept thoughts deposited in our memory.

Right on my dear...

Well...slipping away and be back.. is part of sensory recovery! That was what I partly wanted to write about.

Hope you have a nice week ahead too

Agree with u that "Blindness to truth and logic can sometimes be scarier than physical sight impairment."
