Experience

Everyone has experiences and gains knowledge from these experiences. Sometimes people will attribute their beliefs to a religious experience of some sort. Most of the time, experience is a function of one or more senses. If one is able to gain knowledge from an experience that is not reducible to these senses then this should be considered a new sense. Often times some of the details of one’s experiences can be stored in one’s memory and later remembered to produce experience that are similar to the original.

There is a multitude of emotions that one may draw upon to decide what to believe. Emotion is determined by one’s senses and reasoning and should be considered a type of experience.

Can one gain knowledge from some method other than the senses or reasoning? Please let your voice be heard in the forum.
