It is commonly said (to children) that we have five senses: taste, sight, touch, smell, and hearing. The term "sixth sense" refers to something supernatural. But we do have more senses. Balance, for example, is as tangible as the other senses. More importantly we sense thoughts that organize other senses in space, time and meaning. And emotions. Is there a complete list of the senses?
Does the idea of five senses have ancient roots? Or, since they are selected to be informative about the external objective world, are they the child of the breakthrough of science and engineering since Newton?
