I don't see how you can differentiate between sensing and knowing. I can see how sensing is not the same as wording the knowing but not knowing itself. There is inarticulate knowledge. Art tries to express it. Especially music.
Expanding horizons by making the differentiation should be, it seems to me, an improving skill at the wording more knowing into articulation, in quantum theory, shedding off one more layer of skin, but, hopefully, with a recognition that the process is never to be completed and there are certain dangers in pursuing the objective obsessively.
I continually remind Queenie that exhausting the realm of the possible is a fruitless quest for a well brought up young English lady. Anything that can be articulated is yesterday's cold potatoes when bent on exhausting the realm of the possible, an exhausting process in itself, and there is no chance of doing so.
And I'm not sure what you mean by differentiating between organism and environment.
Have you never melted into the environment?
