This seems to be true because our other five senses are so easily seen, but seeing that we all have ESP, it cannot be so easily seen, but we know that it is there. This is why ESP is one of our weakest senses. ESP, or extrasensory perception, is Perception that occurs independently of the known sensory processes (Encyclopedia Britannica, page 1).

  • Buddha's Reasoning Of The Senses
    360 words
    The issue of our mistrust and or trust in our humanly senses remains a building block for philosophies of many notorious philosophers. In the discussions "The Allegory of the Cave" written by Plato and "Meditation: The Path to Enlightenment" by Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha, both analyze the issue of our senses.

There is a good possibility ...

    2,579 words
    In his first meditation, Descartes sets out with amazing clarity and persistence to clear himself of every false idea that he has acquired previous to this, and determine what he truly knows. To rid him of these "rotten apples" he has developed a method of doubt with a goal to construct a set of beliefs on foundations which are indubitable. On these foundations, Descartes applies three levels of skepticism, which in turn, generate three levels at which our thoughts may be deceived by error. Desc...
  • Aristotle's Theory Of Sense Perception
    2,793 words
    Introduction Aristotle's approach in describing sense perception in De Anima is in many ways similar to modern ones. He makes an attempt to explain all forms of perception - seeing, hearing, touching, smelling and tasting - in purely physiological terms.
