Mundus sensibilis (1617)

5. Robert Fludd

The ‘mundus sensibilis’ is the world of our five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. They are related through concentric rings to the classical four elements: touch is connected to earth (Terra), taste to water (Aqua), smell to gross air (Aer grossus), hearing to fine air (Aer tenuis) and sight to light (Lux).
