The Human body has five senses that keep in touch with everything that is going on in the external world. These five senses are touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing. Furthermore i will describe each sense, and how they work. First taste, the tongue is the body part that helps us sense taste. The tongue consists of taste bud which are (mushroom like projections) which are specific receptors for sense of taste. Each bud contains several cell types in microvilli that project through pores and chemically sense the food. There are gustatory receptor cells that communicate with cranial nerve axon endings to transmit sensation to the brain. There are five taste sensations located on the tongue. They are sweet located front middle, sour located middle sides, salty located front side/tip, bitter located back, and umami located posterior pharynx. The cranial nerves that are associated with our taste sense are VII Facial located within the tongue, IX Glossopharyngeal located within the tongue, and X Vagus located within the pharynx. Taste likes and dislikes have homeostatic value. Taste is affected by many factors, and what is commonly referred to as our sense of taste depends on stimulation of our olfactory receptors by aromas. Then comes Smell, the nose is the body part that helps us sense smell. The nose contains thousands of olfactory receptors which are receptors for sense and smell. When the olfactory receptors are stimulated by chemicals dissolved in the mucus they…
in the physicality of a cheese. This includes the appearance of the cheese, its physical texture (yes, I poke,n igyyigyuyhd my cheese before eating it), and, most importantly, its smell. We can only taste sweet, salty, bitter, acid, and rich/umami. The rest of what is normally referred to as “taste” or “flavor” is all volatile aromatics that we actually smell when eating food.
Suffice it to say, I was chomping at the bit to actually sink my teeth into some of these cheeses. I took a small piece…
our reason are best viewed as stories shaped by history, culture, and character, and all forms of human communication are to be seen fundamentally as stories.

How Color Affects Taste
Does color affect taste? Logically, it is easy to think that the color of a food shouldn’t affect how it tastes, but this theory was proven false. Most people are aware that the sense of taste and the sense of smell are closely tied together, but not many people know that it is also tied to the sense of sight. Human beings are used to having their food look a certain way in appearance and color…
lose one of my senses, I would choose to lose taste.
Though I am being forced to lose a sense in this scenario, many people have lost taste due to other conditions. Taste can be lost from upper respiratory or middle ear infections, radiation therapy for cancer, exposure to certain chemicals like pesticides or medications, head injury, some surgeries to the ear, nose, and throat, or poor oral hygiene and dental problems (Taste Disorders). Losing taste would result in not being able to detect spoiled…
Philosophy of Art
Dr. Donald Casey
“Of the Standard of Taste.”
Hume says that the artist has to relate to the audience when creating the work of art. If he does not, he is being prejudiced. In a stage, the singer has to not only sing for himself but for the audience. When that happens, the audience receives conviction; the artist has to be convicted first in order to show conviction. If the artist does not receive applause, then the audience did not feel what the artist…

Remembering An Event
The inside of my mouth tastes of salt. I can feel my cold, wet, clothes start to cling to my body. I'm soaked. I'm sweating. I can hear a radio playing in the background. As I rub away the dirt that formed in the corners of my eyes, I open them.
I find myself sitting in the car next to my mom. I must have fallen asleep. I scan the car with my eyes in a panic“ where are we going?”, I ask. I can't remember…
