Week #5: Sense is Open!

People, I'm drinking yesterday's re-heated coffee, so you know this posting is McKay-approved.

This week's prompt:

sense (sɛns)
— n
1. any of the faculties by which the mind receives information about the external world or about the state of the body. In addition to the five traditional faculties of sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell, the term includes the means by which bodily position, temperature, pain, balance, etc, are perceived
2. such faculties collectively; the ability to perceive
3. a feeling perceived through one of the senses: a sense of warmth
4. a mental perception or awareness: a sense of happiness
5. moral discernment; understanding: a sense of right and wrong
6. ( sometimes plural ) sound practical judgment or intelligence: he is a man without any sense
7. reason or purpose: what is the sense of going out in the rain?
8. substance or gist; meaning: what is the sense of this proverb?
9. specific meaning; definition: in what sense are you using the word?
10. an opinion or consensus
— vb
11. (make sense): to be reasonable or understandable
12. to perceive through one or more of the senses; become aware of;
13. to apprehend or detect without or in advance of the evidence of the senses
14. to grasp the meaning of; to understand
15. (of certain mechanical devices) to detect physical phenomena, as light, temperature, radioactivity, etc., mechanically, electrically, or photoelectrically.

What about it Teyla's Wraith sense? Ronon's ultra sense of hearing? Atantis' sensors? Elizabeth's sense of morality? John's sense of fair play? Does Rodney lack common sense? :)

Oh, this has potential, I think.
