extrasensory nerves

   I sometimes wonder if there are things that are constantly touching us, following us, helping us, but simply we have no sensory receptors to sense their presence.  Maybe that is what people call religion or a supernatural force...

   A constantly reoccuring theme in Biology is the relationship between organisms.  Maybe there is a lot commensalism or mutualism present between us (current living things) and some other organism that we cannot detect and we do not know that it exists.  Or maybe many of the inexplicable diseases, happenings, etc. are all due to supernatural things that we lack senses to detect.  And pessimistically, maybe there is a parasite that causes all living things to age and eventually die.  Which means, there is a outer force that we cannot detect which makes the law or entropy possible....
