5 | The Six Senses

Five senses are the external entry points of experience. The mind is the sixth sense organ transforming sensory input into conscious mental experiences. With mind arising concepts arise. The world divides into self and other. Self and other are creations of the conceptual mind. It is the conceptual mind that divides objects of perception and the perceiver. Without the conceptual mind there is no separation between perceiver and what is being perceived.
