Vae -- new sense organ

And, if you were giving your entire species a new sense organ, what would you want it to be?

The sense organ I would give mine, I shall call the thlume.  The gleaming faceted short horn it would be in shape, curling under the chin like a goatee.  The correct perception of the emotions of people nearby would it provide, and --- this is the elemental fantasy --- it would allow us to be aware of them.  The unhappiness caused by some gift we make we could see and understand, and, if we wished, we could avoid making it worse.

And you?
