quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer

There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.

Authentic Sensory Perception quotations

Sensory perception quote Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is.
Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is.

It is one of the commonest of our mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all that there is to perceive.

These disturbing phenomena [Extra Sensory Perception] seem to deny all our scientific ideas. How we should like to discredit them! Unfortunately the statistical evidence, at least for telepathy, is overwhelming.

Sensory perception quote If you eyes are opened, you'll see the things worth seeing.
If you eyes are opened, you'll see the things worth seeing.

Such reciprocity is the very structure of perception.

We experience the sensuous world only by rendering ourselves vulnerable to that world. Sensory perception is this ongoing interweavement: the terrain enters into us only to the extent that we allow ourselves to be taken up within that terrain.

Sensory perception is the silken web that binds our separate nervous systems into the encompassing ecosystem.


Time is not a linear flow, as we think it is, into past, present, and future.

Time is an indivisible whole, a great pool in which all events are eternally embodied and still have their meaningful flash of supernormal or extra - sensory perception, and glimpse of something that happened long ago in our linear time.

Sensory perception quote Some people feel the rain. Other just get wet.
Some people feel the rain. Other just get wet.

Today, look at the blue sky, hear the grass growing beneath your feet, inhale the scent of spring, let the fruits of the earth linger on your tongue, reach out and embrace those you love. Ask Spirit to awaken your awareness to the sacredness of your sensory perceptions.

I am thing that thinks: that is, a things that doubts,affirms, denies, understands a few things, is ignorant of many things, is willing, is unwilling, and also which imagines and has sensory perceptions.

Sensorial perception, for example, certainly occurs with greater or less accuracy according to the degree of interest; it is constantly given other directions by the change of external stimuli and by ideas.

Sensory perception quote It is better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.
It is better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.

We are evolving from five-sensory humans into multisensory humans.

... The perceptions of the multi-sensory human extend beyond physical reality to the larger dynamical systems of which our physical reality is a part.


Enjoy the limitless bliss consciousness here and now.

The reality of you lies much beyond your sensory perceptions and boundaries.

There are children playing in the street who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.

Sensory perception quote All our knowledge has its origin in our perceptions.
All our knowledge has its origin in our perceptions.

In the traditionally taught view of perception, data from the sensorium pours into the brain, works its way up the sensory hierarchy, and makes itself seen, heard, smelled, tasted, felt - "perceived." But a closer examination of the data suggests this is incorrect. The brain is properly thought of as a mostly closed system that runs on its own internally generated activity.

The deep secret of the brain is that not only the spinal cord but the entire central nervous system works this way: internally generated activity is modulated by sensory input. In this view, the difference between being awake and being asleep is merely that the data coming in from the eyes anchors the perception.

In Lords of Rainbow I start out by taking away color from the world, and in the process show color's vital place in our lives. At least I hope that by the end of the book it's a portion of what the reader comes away with - a sense of how much color perception enriches our lives and how its lack can make our sensory experience incomplete.

Sensory perception quote When you are dead, you don't even know that you are dead. It's only pain for oth
When you are dead, you don't even know that you are dead. It's only pain for others. Same thing when you are stupid.

Our talk of external things, our very notion of things, is just a conceptual apparatus that helps us to foresee and control the triggerings of our sensory receptors in the light of previous triggering of our sensory receptors.

In the new science of the twenty-first century, not physical force but spiritual force will lead the way. Mental and spiritual gifts will be more in demand than gifts of a physical nature. Extrasensory perception will take precedence over sensory perception. And in this sphere woman will again predominate.

What Warcollier demonstrated is compatible with what modern cognitive neuroscience has learned about how visual images are constructed by the brain. It implies that telepathic perceptions bubble up into awareness from the unconscious and are probably processed in the brain in the same way that we generate images in dreams. And thus telepathic “images” are far less certain than sensory-driven images and subject to distortion.

Sensory perception quote Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.
Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.

Nirvana and enlightenment exist just on the other side of your sensory perceptions and your thoughts.

We're using gradients of light as an auric measurement, a quantified auric measurement of the ascension of consciousness from the relatively sensorial, material perceptions of existence to the more refined spiritual perceptions of existence.


Spiritual science attempts to speak about non-sensory things in the same way that the natural sciences speak about sense-perceptible things...No one can ever deny others the right to ignore the supersensible, but there is never any legitimate reason for people to declare themselves authorities, not only on what they themselves are capable of knowing, but also on what they suppose cannot be known by any other human being.

Sensory perception quote How deep is the mud? Depends on who you ask. We all go through the same stuff di
How deep is the mud? Depends on who you ask. We all go through the same stuff differently.

In the dream state, the only essential difference from waking is the relative absence of sensory input, which makes dreaming a special case of perception without sensory input.

I moved down the street like a cloud of awareness following a body that seemed simultaneously familiar and foreign. There was an incomprehensible attachment to that body, although it no longer felt like "mine". It continued to send out signals of its sensory perception, yet how or where those signals wwere being received was beyond comprehension.

The way I miss my daughter Esme is to worry about her.

It is not a pleasurable longing. It contorts my body and scrambles my brain, makes me stop breathing, clench my jaw and my fists, it makes me frown, and makes me blind and deaf, in fact entirely without sensory perception.

Sensory perception quote Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

A soul subject is something that resonates with you deeper than the intellect can reach...a multi-sensory perception...a recognition of a new freedom that is calling you.
