Can We Create New Senses?

It appears we can do just that with the right application of the right technology.

As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.

What this finding means is so huge that we as humanity maybe opening up to a new horizon of what could be possible. We are no more limited by our inherent physical handicaps but can begin to re-explore the world which we thought we have already understood.

To be able to create new senses makes the possibility of extending human potentials.
