* One Creator/IsaacAsimov short story "[[http://www.e-reading.org.ua/bookreader.php/82105/The_Secret_Sense.html The Secret Sense]]" had an Earthman gain a Martian sense via a special drug. The effects only lasted for a few minutes and ItOnlyWorksOnce. However, it arguably wasn't worth it, because as the Martian points out, the Earthman won't be able to experience that sense again. Metaphorically speaking "You entered a normal man! [[SenseLossSadness You leave blind-blind-BLIND]]."
