Understanding Your Senses

by Ron Kurtus (updated 17 March 2023)

Your senses are the important gateway for receiving information about the world around you and what is being communicated to you. By processing the information you receive through your senses, you gain knowledge, allowing you to respond by talking, writing or using some other means of communication.

This material follows the Kurtusian theory concerning other senses than the five commonly listed in textbooks. I believe that becoming aware of your senses and using them in best way possible is important in being able to achieve goals, excel in activities and prove your worth and value. In other words, your senses are part of what makes you a champion in your chosen endeavors.

The purpose of these free online lessons is to give you a start at improving your awareness of your senses, as well as to show you how to possibly optimize their use.
