We all percieve reality through our sensory perceptors per se, taste, smell, touch, sound, sight. Only through these do we aprehend the world, which
then in turn is intrepeted by our minds.
Now just say a child were to be born without, deaf, blind, and had his sense of smell gone aswell ( Dont know how. lol ) Is this child fully
consciouss of the world around him? Reality is mindstuff or so to say. It manifests itself through our minds, and in humans gives us more of a
threshold on reality.
Also, a child as such has never been born has it ?
This may sound like jibberesh, but believe you me, I feel the same way
My take on this set of hypotheticals to formative consciousness from ingress to life as infant to the resultant adult which would be given complete
absence of conventional sensory telemetry, being sight, sound, hearing, tactile's from skin.
If we are to posit, as all life, we have a bio-electric field and we are among magnetic fileds.
The organism having no use of areas of the brain conscious state which conventionally derive concepts of environ and surroundings would develop from
the start to make use of the fact we exist among magnetic fields which affect very slightly our bio-electric fields as we move among them, as we have
fields, so has everything else.
If all available cognition from the very beginning of said organisms awareness would mean the mind would seek input from whatever is available to make
sense of the organisms environs, this is the most basic manner such a humanoid devoid of all external senses would be able to make sense.
Now we all actually feel on a magnetic and bio-electric manner, but as other senses are there and more obvious, most do not use such awareness, only
psychics and mystics etc cultivate such awareness on such other levels we are all capable of sensing.
I would also suggest the Pineal would be more active and as from being infant, the mind would attune to those extrasensory perceptions and would
likely gain mental formations derived from what thoughts we push at such a person devoid of all conventional external cognition from sensory
telemetry, the organism may not itself have self derived telemetry to construct what we perceive as reality, but i suggest the psionic nature of the
Human organism would prevail and compensate to a great degree, along with self awareness derived from translations in bio-electric and
electromagnetic/magnetic fluctuations and variances in said organisms navigation's.
I suggest that as long as the brain has developed along the same genetic template as most Humans, no neurological dysfunction due to genetic
The person would be very telepathic and would likely formulate language even, most likelythough, a more symbolic transference of thoughts though as
images from others would precede during formative development in infancy upwards from infant as the mind seeks to know and probes around itself and
forming cognitive construction of environment overlayed to translated construct on bio-electric and magentic perceptual translations in and of mind,
as too such an individual would likely be eminantly more telempathic and feel emotional states over perceptions of what others feel from our ranges of
guestures, facial and body langauge cues etc.
We emanate and project our upper and frontal thoughts like salad colanders though unless aware and train not to do such, so such a persons mind would
evolve to make use of that ability within us all to pick up those stray transmissions and translate them but we tune out because of noise from other
sensory telemetries unless we culture the abilities.
It's tempting to consider some perceptions would be similar to those experienced by us if in sensory deprivation chamber, but we are talking about a
very different wiring of the neurosynaptic pathways from the start of consciousness of said hypothetical person, i suggest many psionic elements would
be present to evolve such a person and would potentate way above any common Human organism, as they would predominate completely differently to how we
perceive in all 6-7 senses etc.
But i do think a consciousness would evolve and be capable of navigating our world albeit very differently, as too able to construct reality from what
we emanate as frontal thought patterning.
Will give this more thought, some useful realisations about ourselves can be found from exploring this hypothesis, methinx
Very interesting question!
