The Logic of Perception


Besides the five physical senses, the mind provides us with the sixth sense. The mind sorts out the inconsistencies among the other senses and provides a perception that is not available through the physical senses.

For example, when one is on the surface of a sphere no single coordinate necessarily provides the correct distance from the center. It is the mathematical combination of all three coordinates per the Pythagorean Theorem, which provides the correct distance from the center.

Similarly, when one is operating in this universe, no one sense channel may provide the correct sense of reality. It is the logical combination of the data from all sense channels, which may provide the correct sense of reality.

Disagreement may come about when only one or few senses are focused upon and other senses are ignored. People may individually think that they are right in their perceptions, but none of them may be assessing the reality correctly because they all are limited in their focus.

    The dimension of the BODY = Sensations and perceptions
    The dimension of the MIND = Association
    The dimension of the SPIRIT = Creativity

    Body, mind and spirit are just your dimensions. Or, you can say, “These are the dimensions that are simply out there, and I am not identifying myself with any of them.”
