Interesting. Most everyone else answered "sight". Hmm. Growing up with a blind friend, you almost forgot she was blind--she "saw" with her hands, nose, ears, and sense of heat. (I.e. She ALWAYS won Hide-n-seek). I could learn to see that way.
Agreed! Also, without touch you are likely to get injured more often because you can't feel the hammer hit your thumbnail, how hot your coffee/shower is, or that the stove is still too hot to touch. Pain is key to safety, just as it is to pleasure..

And thank you, Dr. Haddox, for reminding us that we DO need to comtemplate these things. We always have lived in the global world, but now we are all interconnected and interdependant in ways we couldn't forsee even in the very recent past.
Perhaps to you, but I don't think that that is a foregone conclusion. Imagine Beethoven, for example, unable to hear his own compositions or the roar of the crowds when the pieces ended... composing beautifully just upon memory of each note...
