The touch is essentially subjective. Subjective economics…
“Changes in the teachings of the nonhistorical sciences consequently must involve a rewriting of history. Every generation must treat anew the same historical problems because they appear to it in a different light. The theological world view of older times led to a treatment of history other than the theorems of modern natural science. Subjective economics produces historical works very different from those based on mercantilist doctrines.
As far as divergences in the books of historians stem from these disagreements, they are not an outcome of alleged vagueness and precariousness in historical studies. They are, on the contrary, the result of the lack of unanimity in the realm of those other sciences which are popularly called certain and exact.”
– Ludwig von Mises, Human Action, page 53, 54
To feel, its essence is electric.
“…A very sensitive and observant being, with his highly developed mechanism all intact, and acting with precision in obedience to the changing conditions of the environment, is endowed with a transcending mechanical sense, enabling him to evade perils too subtle to be directly perceived. When he comes in contact with others whose controlling organs are radically faulty, that sense asserts itself and he feels the “cosmic” pain. The truth of this has been borne out in hundreds of instances and I am inviting other students of nature to devote attention to this subject, believing that thru combined and systematic effort results of incalculable value to the world will be attained.”
– Nikola Tesla, VI. The Art of Telautomatics, 1919 - ( Autobiography )
All our other four senses, hearing, seeing, taste and smell are essentially touching our surroundings.
“On July 2, 1996, after a long, twisting drive, Donna and I reached the village of Oms, France and the Centre for Research and Development of Haptonomy, perched in the Pyrenees overlooking fertile valleys and orchards near the border of Spain. Few Americans are familiar with this institution or with the man behind it, one of Europe’s influential octogenarians, Frans Veldman, M.D.
And what in the world is haptonomy? It is the science of affectivity and touch and it reaches to the core of what it means to be human. Touch, the first sense, carrying the freight of intention, emotion and thought, is the stuff from which a baby builds a basic sense of safety, trust, and confidence. Haptonomy is especially pertinent to how mothers and fathers relate to babies in the womb and how obstetricians relate to babies at birth. Veldman believes that much of the violence addiction, and aimless behavior seen in youth today is related to negative engrams of touch at birth.”

Its the fith sense, the touch, which processes all types of information.
“In the traditional sciences, it has rarely been thought necessary to discuss in any explicit kind of way the processes that are involved in perception…
In everyday life we are continually bombarded by huge amounts of data, in the form of images, sounds, and so on…”
– Stephen Wolfram, A New Kind of Science, 2002, page 548
Its the touch.
‘1/64 was represented by touch, symbolized by a leg touching the ground, or what can also be thought of as a strong plant growing into the surface of the earth. The pyramid text says: “I shall see the Gods and the Eye of Horus burning with fire before my eyes!”‘
