And here they are:
Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other.
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock.
Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes.
Magentoception: This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields.
Tension Sensors: These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception: In a word, pain. This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system. There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).
what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

You can close your eyes
but the sun will still
kiss your eyelids,
and the darkness
in your chest
will never be
to keep the air
from your lungs.
You may feel
like you’re breaking
from the inside out,
but I promise you
that your ribs
are strong enough
to keep you together.
You are more
than your despair.
You are life entombed
in flesh and bone.
You are resilient.
You are unique.
But most of all,
You are loved.
