How Your Nose Knows

By Ruth and Edward Brecher

My, But this tastes good!” you remark as you take your first sip o piping-hot onion soup, salted, peppered, seasoned with herbs and garnished with cheese.

You’re wrong, of course. writing-sense-of-smellYou mean that the soup smells good. Your sense of taste tells you only whether a substance is sweet, sour, salty or bitter. It is your sense of smell that reveals the true savor of the soup. Try sipping onion soup while holding your nose, or when you have a head cold. The characteristic flavor vanishes. All that is left is a hot, some what salty liquid. By means of taste alone, you can barely distinguish between a food you love and one you detest. Read more →

Have we Lost Our Senses?

By Santha Rama Rau

Years Ago, polls_hearing_impaired_1533_993047_answer_2_xlargewhen I was a child living in my grandmother’s house in North India, the meat and fish for our very large household were brought around by traveling vendors. Whenever the fishmonger appeared, all the children of the family would rush to the courtyard in excitement. The reason was that the man kept his fish on large slabs of ice, and ice was a most exotic novelty to us. Read more →

Hearing: The Fourth Dimension

By john Kord Lagemann
Employee of GN, the world's fourth largest maker of hearing aids, demonstrates the use of ReSound LiNX in ViennaOur world is filled with sounds we never hear. The human auditory range is limited to begin with: if we could hear sounds lower than 20 vibrations per second, we would be driven mad by the rumblings and creaking’s of our muscles, intestines and heartbeats; every step we take would sound like an explosion. But even within our auditory range we select, focus, pay attention to a few continually “turn off.” But in the process we shut out the glorious symphony of sound in which the living world is bathed.

You can Learn to see more

By wolfgang langewiesche
Catching-the-Reading-BugA Bit of light comes into the eye an electric impulse flits through the brain and we “see.” Science doesn’t really know, what light is or what the mind is but much is now known about the miracle of seeing. Neurologists have shown how the eye registers pictures of objects and how the brain electrically interprets the pictures. Psychologists have demonstrated that our past experiences, our expectations and our emotions color everything we see, so that it’s actually the I behind our eye that sees. Much of this knowledge is new, and it carries a great idea: we can learn to use our eyes more effectively than we do. We can see more. Read more →

TO TOUCH IS TO KNOW

By john kord lagemann

touch (1) DON’T LOOK AT the world with your hands in your pockets.” Mark Twain once told an aspiring young author. “To write about it you have to reach out and touch it.” I thought of this advice when I dropped in on Robert Barnitt, former executive director of the American Foundation for the Blind.

How Man Got His Remarkable Mind

By Desmond Morris

remarkableTHERE ARE 193 living species of monkeys and apes. One hundred and ninety-two of them are covered with hair. The exception is a naked ape self-named Homo sapiens. This unusual and highly successful species spends a great deal of time examining his higher motives while studiously ignoring his fundamental ones. He has the biggest brain of all the primates, but has remained a naked ape nevertheless. In acquiring lofty new motives, he has lost none of the earthy old ones of his evolutionary past. He would be a far less worried and more fulfilled animal if only he would face up to this fact. Read more →

When in Doubt Do!

By Arthur Gordon
One winter day doubt (1)several years ago I found myself having lunch at the seaside cottage of some friends, a couple in their 20s. The other guest was a retired college professor a marvelous old gentleman, still straight as a lance after seven decades of living. The four of us had planned a walk on the beach after lunch. But as gusts of wind shook the house and occasional pellets of sleet hissed against the windows, our hosts’ enthusiasm dwindled. Read more →
