Definition for Sense-Able
Sense-able (see also: Meta-sense-able)
We need to introduce and define two terms relative to the Language of the Body. Both are coined for use in STOSS. They are sense-able and meta-sense-able. On February 20, 1980, JP II said something that I believe is one of his most profound statements regarding the body. He said, “The body, in fact, and it alone is capable of making visible what is invisible: the spiritual and divine. It was created to transfer into the visible reality of the world, the mystery hidden since time immemorial in God [John Paul II, in his general audience of February 20, 1980, “Man Enters the World as a Subject of Truth and Love,” Theology of the Body, Libreria Editrice Vaticana (Third Millennium Media L.L.C., The Faith Database L.L.C., 2008), n. 4].” As profound as this statement is, I would nevertheless like to modify it slightly. To incorporate STOSS into the understanding of the Pope’s words, I would rephrase it thus: The body, and it alone is capable of transferring the spiritual and divine into physical creation, and doing so through the sense-able and meta-sense-able components of the language of the body. One of the components of any expression sent via the body is that it is sense-able, i.e., the expression can be perceived by one or more of the five naked senses.
