New Life #788 – The Five Senses

New Life #788 – The Five Senses
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel


Everything in nature is divided into five, that is the nature of creation.

Main topics of the program:

  • Each one of the five senses—sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch—are composed of five subsystems.
  • There are people whose range of the senses is much greater than that of others.
  • The sense of touch consists of impressions from the environment that are not absorbed through the other four senses.
  • The sense of sight made the development of reading and writing, the transfer of information, possible.
  • The function of the senses is to make it possible for a person to be in connection with the environment and to portray within us an internal picture of reality.
  • There is a lot of information that is not perceived through our senses. We don’t absorb the complete reality, only a part of it.
  • To develop the ability to absorb, we must study the wisdom of Kabbalah.
  • Plants feel if a person next to them is good or bad.
  • The desire to receive pleasure and enjoyment, the desire for pleasure, which is the substance of creation, developed the senses to serve it.
  • A desire is a lack. If I lack something, a desire for it develops within me.
  • People, like animals, have five senses because they are a part of the animate world, and plants are on a lower level of development.
  • Beyond the corporeal desires of the animate level—nourishment, sex, and family—humans have a desire for wealth, respect, and knowledge.
  • The degree of sensitivity of our senses depends on our needs. Animals feel more than us because they have to hunt for their nourishment.
  • We are about to acquire one additional sense that is fundamentally different than the rest of the senses. It is called the “sense of bestowal,” love, whose meaning is going out of oneself.
  • The desire to receive will be replaced by the desire to bestow, to give, to love, which will develop five new senses in us.
