- Hearing gives him an idea of relative direction, and enables a man to
fix his place in the scheme, and to locate himself.
- Touch gives him an idea of relative quantity and enables him to fix his relative
value as regards other bodies, extraneous to himself.
- Sight gives him an idea of proportion, and enables him to adjust his movements to
the movements of others.
- Taste gives him an idea of value, and enables him to fix upon that which to him
- Smell gives him an idea of innate quality, and enables him to find that which
appeals to him as of the same quality or essence as himself.
In all these definitions it is necessary to bear in mind that the whole object of
the senses is to reveal the not-self, and to enable the Self therefore to differentiate
between the real and the unreal.
These three major senses (if I might so describe them) are very definitely allied, each
with one of the three Logoi:
- Hearing - The recognition of the fourfold word, the activity of matter, the third
- Touch - The recognition of the sevenfold Form Builder, the gathering together of
forms, their approximation and interrelation, the second Logos. The Law of Attraction
between the Self and the not-self begins to work.
- Sight - The recognition of totality, the synthesis of all, the realization of the
One in Many, the first Logos. The Law of Synthesis, operating between all forms which the
self occupies,  and the recognition of the essential unity of all manifestation by
the means of sight.
- Hearing - Beatitude.
This is realized through the not-self.
- Touch - Service.
The summation of the work of the Self for the not-self.
- Sight - Realization.
Recognition of the triplicity needed in manifestation, or the reflex action of the Self
and the not-self.
- Taste - Perfection.
Evolution completed through the utilization of the not-self and its realized adequacy.
- Smell - Perfected Knowledge.
The principle of manas in its discriminating activity, perfecting the interrelation
between the Self and the not-self.
