Origin of "Sensation" and "perception"

Here also we see the abstraction-proned derivation towards the "higher" mind capacities over the basical ones... Just "understanding is today more used for rationalising comprehension that for physical, direct sensation...


Medieval Latin sensation-, sensatio, from Late Latin, understanding, idea, from Latin sensus
First Known Use: 1615

in etymology on line:
Look up sensation at Dictionary.com
1610s, "a reaction to external stimulation of the sense organs," from M.L. sensationem (nom. sensatio), from L.L. sensatus"endowed with sense, sensible," from L. sensus "feeling" (see sense). Meaning "state of shock, surprise, in a community" first recorded 1779

So we conclude that today universities and schools are not creating "sensatus", sensible people... just because the orthogonal organization prevents their development.

If shamanism is intended to increase your sensitive awareness within the world, it seems "sensatus" (spanish: sensato) to propose, as a invitation, an increase in interest in shamanism in general by scientists, at least as a minimum tribute for millenia of "forgoten mother-science"...
Perception: in etymology online:
Look up perception at Dictionary.com
late 15c., "receiving, collection," from L. perceptionem (nom. perceptio) "perception, apprehension, a taking," from percipere"perceive" (see perceive). First used in the more literal sense of the Latin word; in secondary sense, "the taking cognizance of," it is recorded in English from 1610s. Meaning "intuitive or direct recognition of some innate quality" is from 1827

At the end, "taking, receiving", that is, something result of millenia of coevolution, where all the ecosystem act as a symbiotic (first sense: living together) system where life is a gift, not a businness... That is, you receive all sensations without working, only you need your familiarization with sensations, in order to know them. Here "know" means already sensing, just because sensing means an act of interacting, where two parts at minimum are considered, as a conversation. Life, or world, is a big conversation, and all the systematic reductionistic, stimulus-response, lineal, dichotomic methods are going to be obsolete soon, we are reaching complexity as a basis for understanding real, actual, living, systems.

1560s, from L.L. capabilis "receptive," used by theologians, from L. capax "able to hold much, broad, wide, roomy;" also "receptive, fit for;" adj. form of capere "to take, grasp, lay hold, catch, undertake, be large enough for, comprehend," from PIE*kap- "to grasp" (cf. Skt. kapati "two handfuls;" Gk. kaptein "to swallow, gulp down;" Lett. kampiu "seize;" O.Ir. cacht "servant-girl," lit. "captive;" Welsh caeth "captive, slave;" Goth. haban "have, hold;" O.E. hæft "handle," habban "to have, hold;" see have). Related: Capably
