there’s no right number some say 5, 7, 14, 24, or even 57, our most basic senses are actually sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch, but also movement, body position, temperature balance and the sense of our internal state like feeling your heart.

for example close your eyes and touch your nose that’s proprioception or body position.

#4. Oranges are always orange (Myth)

sweet oranges are a hybrid of tangerines and the pomelo with a bright green skin to help protect them from the sun, in warmer climates like southeast asia oranges are still a bright green.
