A key concept introduced in the original “What is Humanistic Paganism?” post was the Five +1. It refers to the five empirical senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch), plus the additional “sense” of introspection. It’s a way of conceptualizing looking within, which can be a strange proposition to some. By analogy to the traditional sense organs, introspection becomes a sixth sense. To avoid paranormal connotations, the term Five +1 was introduced.
The problem is, the “Five +1” has garnered almost no response at all, despite discussion and a meditation designed around it. I wonder if the term just doesn’t resonate with people. Some other term might be better.
That’s why I need your help.
Please rate the appeal of the term from 1-5, with 1 being least and 5 most.
Then please share your suggestions for alternative terms in the comments.
