May 19th: Dulled


You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp β€” but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

I won’t be sipping that magic potion after all because I am in fine tuned with all of my senses.Β

  1. The mysterious man seems to have ulterior motives. Why is he offering a beverage for free that many would gladly pay a lot of money for? What does he want in return? Another red flag: Given that the five senses are biologically either only loosely related (as with taste and smell) or not related at all (as with touch and hearing), by what arcane technology has such a beverage been produced? Yeah, right, β€œmagic” Another reason for suspicion: why does he want you to β€œsip” the liquid. Why can’t I guzzle or quaff it?
