The True Sixth Sense - Proprioception

There extremely may be a sixth sense: it’s known as proprioception. It’s the sense of position and movement. it's created by nerves in our muscles and connective tissues. While not proprioception, you couldn’t get up. You couldn’t such a lot as scratch your nose, as a result of you wouldn’t be ready to notice it.

What will proprioception “feel” like? It’s like asking a fish what water looks like. We have a tendency to can’t recognize, as a result of we have a tendency to cannot shut it off and it doesn’t alter the approach sights or sounds do. You can’t actually recognize what interoception looks like till it’s gone.

There is a really rare medicine condition that deprives folks of this extraordinary, little-known sense. King Oliver Sacks describes a case of it in his book, the person World Health Organization Mistook His woman for a Hat: “She continues to feel the loss of proprioception, that her body is dead, not-real, not-hers … she will notice no words for this state, and might solely use analogies derived from alternative senses ….”

Long Knives Come Out in Copenhagen

Ahead of the Copenhagen Environmentalist Love-In, the 'developed' nations of the world had a little pow-wow and made arrangements to maintain power. Despite all the lip service about giving developing nations a say regarding what kind of light bulbs Uncle Sam can use in his personal dwelling, looks like they're really not going to share the power after all. Shock of all Shocks! You mean, the West isn't going to let Haiti tell us how much carbon we can emit? Why? Dollars. 

You see, despite the earth's impending fiery demise, cash rules. Haiti, or whichever backwater country, would have direct leverage on our economy and our habits if they were given that kind of influence and THAT'S not going to happen because Obama and the Euro-Weenies want that for themselves! You see, this illustrates so well the fact that this is not about carbon or any other type of pollution. It's about power. The fact that the Copenhagen Cultists put out the carbon of 60 developing countries just getting to Copenhagen is evidence enough of their priorities.
