Multisensory Humans and Science Fiction

Multisensory humans are people who use more than the five senses to perceive the world. There have always been multisensory human beings. All of us have this intuitive sixth sense. But we are now in an era when large numbers of human beings are developing their sixth sense.
The five senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste) are useful for perceiving the physical world around us. The sixth sense is useful for perceiving the non-physical. It’s been called intuition. But too many people associate that word with “hunches” or “guessing” or other dismissive associations. The medical definition is: intuition. 1: immediate apprehension or cognition without reasoning or inferring. 2: knowledge or conviction gained by intuition. 3: the power or faculty of gaining direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference.
Multisensory perception is more than what is commonly thought of as intuition, even medical intuition. It’s an awareness from a soul level. It’s a recognition that you are more than a mind and a body, and that your personality is not your soul. Your soul is that part of you that existed before you were born and that will exist after you die. Your soul is the real you.
From the perspective of a multisensory personality, you can see your life in the context of a larger, unfolding picture. You can see that your life is attempting to lead you in the direction your soul wants you to move – expanding your horizon toward greater awareness and freedom. You can see that the experiences in your life are not random. As the psychiatrist Carl Jung has stated, there are no coincidences, your experiences are purposeful and meaningful.
Science fiction has always been about expanding horizons and wondering about what the future may hold. Some science fiction writers have demonstrated remarkable sixth sense development in what they’ve written. We should expect more in the very near future.
