I don't think "5 senses" is enough.

How do you describe other sources of info. about the universe?

What "sense" tells you that you are using logically consistent arguments?

What "sense" delivers you "doubts"? And "counter-doubts"?

What "sense" gives you "a gut feeling about something"?

What "sense" delivers you a "desire"?

What "sense" delivers you all manner of concepts that humans have not invented words for?

Surely information on the universe is provided not just by 5 physical senses; but by the overall sense of "detecting existence of phenomena", phenomena that may not have any physical substance appreciable by the 5 body senses.

Even body senses differ from species to species; eg. echo-sounding by bats, geographical-location by migrating birds (magnetic?), etc.
