I went through 3 books from the library and 3 journal articles online this week. I will list interesting information I came across:

- Feeling takes places in the second layer of skin and not the topmost.

-Sense of touch is the first to emerge and the last to burn out among the senses.

-Babies who are regularly massaged/touched gain weight 50% faster. They are more active, more alert, responsive, aware of their surroundings. They orient faster and are more emotionally in control.

-Sense of self has mostly to do with the the sense of touch and how one "feels"

-Amadou Hampate Ba says:
Learn to listen to silence and you will discover it's music.
