Excerpt About Organs of Perception
The Many Human Capacities for PerceptionThe human organism has in it many capacities for perception. The physical senses are the capacities available to ordinary humanity. However, there are many other organs or capacities for perception that are subtle and, in a sense, invisible. There are capacities for inner seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching, and so on that have to do with the perception of the inner realm, that of the Essence. There are capacities for intuition, direct cognition, synthesis, discrimination, and so on. All of these capacities are fuelled by the substance of Essence…These organs or capacities are connected to various energetic centers in the body that animate both the body and the mind.
