I know it sounds like a weird question to ask in a computer forum. My reasoning is this. We have seen computers used by people that are blind, deaf, mute etc.... Computers are used right across the board. We use computers for various reasons. Some for purely achademic reasons, others as a means of expression, relaxation (???) or entertainment. Our five senses enable us to experience different facets of each situation we live in and through.
There are 5 senses (formally).
For those of us who are fortunate enough to have all of these five senses and also for those who may not have all of them..... if you had to go without a sense that you currently had, what would it be and why?
Why would you choose it over another.
For example, I have all five senses and they are fairly well balanced. Being a visual person, I definently need sight. I love music and could not live without it. Therefore I need sound. Touch is very important to me. To feel texture it itself is almost like sight beyond sight. Smell is something so sensual as it stirs emotions in me.
Taste is something that I could sacrifice. I have never really been mad about food. Even as I say this, I appreciate the taste of a nice stir fry, a handful of dried fruit or a piece of chocolate.
Have you ever really thought about your five senses?
Have you ever considered how your life would be without one of them?
What would you consider your most important sense and your least?
I am a digital designer amongst other things. As graphical communication is a language beyond words, communication in itself becomes a state of mind.
Hope to hear from you soon.
