First in a Field Sobriety Test (FST), Detainees are not ask to grab and or feel something or themselves, (fondle etc,) unless they are crooked cops and these days the Departments are loaded with the “The Finest Men” a city has to offer. Still police also do not conduct a FST to inquire about your nose being hot or cold etc.
They simply ask the person to perform one action! The action is that a person is required to touch his or her nose with eyes closed. He is not told to caress, fondle, pinch, “feel” his nose. In essence he/she is basically asked to “Position” their finger right up to the nose without sight. One will know that they have “docked” their finger with their nose when there is the pressure feedback from the skin of both the finger and their nose.
To illustrate this more clearly, Prisoners during war and even in regular jails are (if you can see it differently from a perspective of the different senses):
1st Sense – Nose (smell): Many times prisoners are also deprived of their ability to breathed. This is done repeatedly usually extending the amount of time. Just like starvation, asphyxiation /suffocation is a form of torture by depriving the individual of crucial oxygen. Water-boarding would fall into a combine inter-sensory Mouth-nose asphyxiation potentially and many times leading to suffocation. Additionally, prolonged lack of oxygen to the brain leads permanent brain damage. No testing done previously can set a standard about how long the average person can endure as everybody is different and thus it it not known if the tortures will go passed the individual’s threshold before brain damages ensure. This then can become an issue for war crimes though many countries will try to avoid it.
2nd Sense – Mouth (Taste): Gagged to deprive/prevent them from “communicating” to each other, and also as a form of torture many time deprived for extended periods of time of both food or water.
3rd Sense – Hands (Touch*): To feel tactilely, “visible (eyes opened)” tactile groping? (In depth discussion below)
4rd Sense – Ears (Hearing): “Ear-plugged” though not exactly as once there are gagged they can not talk thus no sound is entering their ear canals. Additionally, prisoners (POWs) are separated from each to prevent this and other things (discussed in detail later also). They are in a sense “repositioned” away from fellow prisoners and from the people that captured them so that they will not over-hear any of their “mission critical” planning or other secrets.
5th Sense – Eyes (Sight): blindfolded to deprived/prevent them from seeing what is around them, learning their location, memorizing technological, military, or troop strengths.
*Touch: If touch was really a sense, prisoners would be “gloved” (with added measures to prevent them from removing their gloves) once again to deprive them of caressing, fondling, “feeling” themselves and fellow prisoners. That could be said, to deprived anyone of sexual enjoyment if prisoner(s) were suspected of being homosexual(s) and that they would be in any mood for such acts during this unusually trying times. Additionally, the average person hardly ever spends more than a few seconds or a few minutes at most do visible tactile groping (used as the sense of what we now call “touch”) to find out what an object is or is not. Maybe this is done (groping) initially just to learn how to hold an object, (how much pressure to apply). Instead most people spend a considerable amount of time extending their arms/hand (any appendage) grabbing to reposition an object if within reach or repositioning themselves close enough by walking toward it to then be able to grab and reposition food, glass of water, or any other object to then be put to used or re-examine with the other senses. In all actually what is done to prisoners, is to handcuff them, ankle-cuffed, and then many times also chained to barely unmovable or unmovable heavy object such as a wall, (in ancient time heavy metal or rock balls.) This can also include chaining both ankles to each other with just enough links to make walking difficult and running nearly impossible. Basically considerable amount of time, energy, and expense that are employed by capturers/ police to prevent movement of hands and of whole self by the use of restrained legs-&-feet. What they are really trying to do is to prevent autonomous positioning or repeatedly re-positioning of individuals.
In essence there is no sense of touch, but there is position and movement or better yet a sense of locomotion better explained as position–movement-reposition or simply the sense of position-reposition. We live in a world of time and space but we ourselves occupy a position in that space; thus everything that happens and interacts in the world is due to time and position-reposition (station and movement).
Now many will try to argue against this and why would they not as there is something to be gain by this limit understanding. This has probably been the consensus for probably over thousand years; maybe worst a fallacy or lie of satanic proportions that has maybe for as long as the English language has exist! The major problem, as is with many other issues, is that as long as there is a label for this human sense, there is little need to re-invent the “wheel”, that is spending time and energy toward understanding it would be almost futile. If to inquire, yet thinking that no new knowledge would be gained for a new “linguistic convention” while a older one exist that everybody is already content to agree with.
Saying that there is the sense of touch implies that it is something that is done with the fingers. This is comparable as saying that the eyes give people the sense of “crying”. The amount of time spent crying is small except for newborns and young children as we are expected to almost completely grow out of this all-to-human experience by the time we are considered mature adults, major event of great loss excluded. Now the Fingers do contain all types of receptors that convey many different types of information to the brain. People are not likely to question this issue; this is because everything that is done consciously “by touch” is done with the fingers, occasionally the whole hands. This is not 100% accurate as people can lean against something or someone could even bring an object that is sharp, hot, or cold near to any part of the body without that person initially be aware of this and almost immediate anybody would sense or “feel” this. Our whole body not just of hand and fingers is composed internally and externally with the same or similar receptors as those normally associate with tactile sensations.
The question becomes why would this not be pointed out way back in history (over thousand years), or even during any of the renaissance or enlightenment eras of the last 500 years? First if we go back enough in history we are aware that eventually there came a time when man started enslaving and oppressing fellow human beings. There arouse the need for justice and a legal system to ensure such basic human rights. One of the first written set of laws is known as Mose’s Ten Commandments, and one of these laws was “Thou shalt not kill”. Death was considered one of the gravest of offenses by one human against another, this being against the will of God. As such being a free man himself and even a prince of Egypt, Mose’s was not or could not be put to death “morally”; instead he was excommunicated from Egypt by the authorities. They could not actually nor morally kill him, but they could facilitate his death believing that without food or water he would have died within a few days across the desert. Diplomatically he was told that he was not welcomed back and therefore could not move freely in Egypt, but he was free to move outside the boundaries of the kingdom. He could change his position and then re-position himself anywhere outside the kingdom.
Nearly all “civil” countries within modern society now consider as deeply inhumane the following acts such gouging somebody’s eyes out, cutting their tongue out or nose off, cutting the outer ear or damaging the inner ear through whatever means, and then as is done in many countries cutting fingers, the hands, or any part of the legs or feet off. Any of these actions would basically impair the average person of any one of their God-given senses thus limiting how they can survive in the world. These actions, on the whole against any human, as along as we know and understand their function clearly we can sympathize with the individual experiencing such atrocities! The understanding would lead many to question and speak out against intentionally making any human handicap.
If the right to movement-position-reposition was considered a crucial God-given sense it could not morally be taken away, just as eyesight, hearing, etc. This would stand as an obstacle that could not be transgress. A basic human right, a freedom. This then shines a new light on many issues related to holding or prevent someone “movement”; these would then open up a whole can of worms which would include the creation national boundaries, then also the concept of citizenship, imprisoning, the issue of immigration and even the concept of illegal aliens. If this sense was better understood as “free of location-reposition” then governments could not legally detained, imprison, or provide “citizenship” to some and not too others. So is Citizenship then done similarly as an owner puts a dog collar on his pet? Is it done to show ownership thus then justifying the perimeter of the enslavement cage (national boundaries) holding those that constantly work and produce through the collection of taxes, for a few calling themselves the elites or wanna-be-lords?
Now the concept of entering a geographical location stems from thinking of a stranger trying to come into one’s own house. Yet the owner of the house built the dwelling due to lack of maybe caves and needing protecting from the elements. God did not built the house so he would not say have it open to everybody but He did create the land and the seas. Likewise most of oceans are considered free at least for now, but land has been monopolized by a certain kind of individual. The same kind that perpetrated the lie of the sense of touch.
Thinking: At the individual level, any individual that appears before us and demands that we reposition ourselves near them, versus they repositioning themselves closer to us is thus also acting from a mind frame of superiority.
Further evidence supporting conclusion:
From Latin locō from a local/place, ablative of locus place + motion ]
The position-movement sensation was originally described in 1557 by Julius Caesar Scaliger as a “sense of locomotion”. Much later, in 1826, Charles Bell expounded the idea of a “muscle sense” and this is credited with being one of the first described physiologic feedback mechanisms. (Wikipedia)
“Proprioception”, “interoception”, and “exteroception”. movement derived from muscular, inter organs, exter sensaton such or ears mouth, etc. kinesthesia is “proprioception) kinesthesia is the sense of body motion and used interchangeably with proprioception which many state it is a feedback mechanism. sense of equilibrium or balance (Wikipedia )
The “exteroceptors” are the organs responsible for information from outside the body such as the eyes, ears, mouth, and skin. (Wikipedia)
There are specific receptors for pressure, light, temperature, sound, and other sensory experiences.
Transient receptor potential channels (TRP channels) are a group of ion channels. There are about 28 TRP channels that share some structural similarity to each other. These are grouped into two broad groups: group 1 includes, TRPC ( “C” for canonical), TRPV (“V” for vanilloid), TRPM (“M” for melastatin), TRPN and TRPA. In group 2 there are TRPP (“P” for polycystic) and TRPML (“ML” for mucolipin). Many of these channels mediate a variety of sensations like the sensations of pain, hotness, warmth or coldness, different kinds of tastes, pressure, and vision. Some act as sensors of osmotic pressure, volume, stretch, and vibration. (Wikipedia)
We live in a society where there is technology to capture, measure, re-examine, and extend everything that our senses can do. These include video cameras and television; sound recorders, record and MP3 players; phones and voice-mail; compressors, barometers, and pressure relief valves; heater, refrigerators and thermometers, Then historically there has been some form of tools or vehicle to provide positioning or repositioning of resources; now these vehicles have instruments to measure the position (GPS), the velocity, and even acceleration.
Scientific, Mathematical, and Spiritual Testaments:
There two great fields of discipline partially developed and expounded greatly by Issac Newton that dealt precisely with this level of understanding. One was called physics in which analysis all interaction of stationary and moving objects through his “Three Laws of Motions”
The other great discipline independently developed by both Issac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz deals exactly in the mathematical observation, measurement, and predictability of the transformation of position into movement and its changes. The two functions deals with integral and the derivatives.
Derivatives Of Displacement [repositioning in regard to time (the future)]
When people move, they change the position will do it at some speed (velocity). Th 1st Derivative of Displacement is velocity or basically calculus simply states that velocity is change in position per unit of time.
The 2nd Derivative is acceleration: The term “acceleration” refers to the change in instantaneous velocity. Picking up speed thus repositioning yourself faster.
The 3rd derivative is jerk; 4th derivative is snap (jounce); the 5th and 6th derivatives of the displacement vector are sometimes referred to as crackle and pop, respectively.
God being the ultimate force in Heaven made it so that nothing, beside Himself, can be immovable; Nothing else in Heaven and Earth can remain motionless and for there exists: Gravity to compel all bodies in the universe to move just as He also created the Holy Spirit that ultimate compels (/moves) the spirit Man to Act!
Issac Newton was a very spiritual Man thus he disguised much of his understanding when he wrote regarding the inhibition of sense of Freedom (movement-position) as a warning!
1st Law: People like to be left alone, if busy don’t stop me, if resting don’t make me move! All Beings resist changes in their state of being.
2nd Law: FORCE is equal MASS times ACCELERATION. You will not be able to reposition any being unless you come with a greater force (to overcome his inertia i.e. his determination to continue as is)
3rd Law: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Some will seek it so expect revenge. People call it justice!
Newton’s Laws of Motion as they are taught in school.
Newton’s First Law of Motion “The Law of Inertia”:
I. Every object in a state of uniform motion (rest) tends to remain in that state of motion (rest) unless an external force is applied to it. All objects resist changes in their state of motion.
Newton’s Second Law of Motion:
II. The relationship between an object’s mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector.
This is the most powerful of th e three Laws, , as it allows quantitative calculations of dynamics:
FORCE = MASS times ACCELERATION
Everyone knows that heavier objects require more force to move the same distance as lighter objects.
Newton’s Third Law of Motion:
III. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
This law is exemplified by what happens if we step off a boat onto the bank of a lake: as we move in the direction of the shore, the boat tends to move in the opposite direction (leaving us face down in the water, if we aren’t careful!).
