There Are 5 Human Senses, But Did You Know We All Have A 6th Sense Too?
We all grew up being taught that human beings have five senses, vision, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. We took them for granted and moved on unless sometimes went wrong with one of them. They came naturally so we never questioned them and we never wondered what else our bodies could be capable of.
Well, it turns out the human body is a lot more capable than we think, and it there may be a hidden six sense, if not more, within all of us.
The 6th Sense: Proprioception

Before we explain what this is, let's find out if you have it. Close your eyes for a second. Does the world around you disappear? If you answered no, and you still have an awareness of what's going on around you try to lift a finger to your nose. Can you tell where it is without seeing it? If you can innately tell where it is, then you have this six sense.
Proprioception is the ability to tell where our limbs are and how our bodies are positioned in space. Even if it is in total darkness. It's a sense of the world and our body's place in it, even when we can't see it.
Wait There Are More: Equilibrioception

Scientists say we might actually have about 14-20 additional senses. Not only do we intuitively know where our body is in space, but we also know how to keep it upright, and it's not all because of gravity. We have another sense called equilibrioception, which is our sense of balance.
This sense is why even if somebody spins you around and you roll over and feel all dizzy, you still know how to get back up. It's all thanks to the vestibular system in the inner ear. The same system is what enables velocity, which is how even if you tilt your head to the right, you'll still be able to read this whole article. Go ahead, try it!

While a thermostat is definitely helpful, you usually can tell whether it's hot or cold based on your own perception, The interesting part is that even if t you weren't outside, you likely would be able to detect the temperature thanks to the thermoreceptors in your skin.
This is what intuitively tells you that something will be too hot to touch even if you've never touched it before.
Electropception And Magnetoreception

The list is long but you get the idea. The human body can do amazing things we tune in to it and listen to its abilities. Our intuition is so much more than a hunch, it's actually our guide to the world and its environment.
For instance, there's electroception, which is the ability to sense electrical fields. Sharks actually use this sense too to find their prey. There is magnetoreception or the ability to detect magnetic fields. Bats are already using this sense to find their way in caves.
Seeing With Fingertips

Believe it or not there might actually be a very strong possibility that some human beings can see with their fingertips. A Russian scientist found a 22‐year‐old girl who could detect color by her sense of touch and read the text of a newspaper by running her fingers over the print.
There was another American woman who can identify colors by touch alone. Who knows how many more of them there could be out there and how they developed this sense?
What Are Our Limits?

Think of vibrations and how it aligns us with the universe. All things in our universe are constantly in motion, vibrating. This is considered a fact. Even objects that appear to be stationary are in fact, vibrating at various frequencies. This means that all matter is just vibrations of various underlying fields.
We are not always tuned in enough to sense all these vibrations until they come into certain proximity or unless we are matching their frequency. When we align, we sync up in ways that seem almost magical and make crazy coincidences happen.
