The capacity of organisms that provides data for perception is called a sense; as in the five senses in humans. This leaves a theory of overlapping topics, such as Cognitive Science and/or Philosophy of Perception. Or to put it into other words, there are five traditionally recognized senses. (Give (+) or take (-) four of them in a few Homo sapiens I personally know and/or hang-out with.) Ophthalmoception - Sight, Audioception - Hearing, Gustation - Taste, Olfacception - Smell, Tactioception - Touch.
Whilst some species of animals are able to sense the world in a way that humans cannot. All this has nothing to do with my short stories. I just needed filler for the preface. Enjoy, Mike.
