Of your seven senses which is most important to you...choose wisely...
Hearing. The loss of music and poetry would be far more tragic to me then any other sensation.
Sight. Watching my two-month-old son's smile brings me a joy like nothing I've ever experienced before.
I would retain my eyesight.
Smell: I wouldn't be able to smell a birthday cake but I could see the creamy white vanilla frosting and multi colored sprinkles.
Touch:I wouldn't be able to tell the difference whether or not a cake pan was searing my flesh or what my burning flesh smelled like smelled like as I pulled it out of the oven.However I would be able to see the burn and treat it.
Taste:I wouldn't be able to taste the cake I just baked and that is not necessarily a bad thing trust me I wouldn't mind.
Hearing:I wouldn't be able to hear my children singing happy birthday but I could watch their reactions as they eat my lousy cake and pretend to like it.
Intuition:If I kept my sight I could see any perceptions that I might have missed.
Equlibrium:As long as I can see the beauty of nature I'll always have a sense of balance.
The primary five Senses are Sight, Smell, Taste, Hear, Feel. The additional two are Knowledge, & Being.
These are the 7 senses I'm aware of, though you'll hear arguments of less and more.
We might as well add Intuition to the list..do you know of more?
If you weren't able to "touch," you would literally die.
There was a girl who had no sensation whatsoever, and her joints would grind together and wear down (because she didn't realize her body was uncomfortable and shift, like most people would do).
She also would have no idea that she was leaning on a hot stove or washing her hands with water that was way too hot.
Anyway, she literally died in her early 20s because she wore her body down too much.
So...yeah...I'd choose touch.
Also, without being able to feel, you wouldn't get to enjoy sex. That would blow.
