Social SENSE–what if

Need to explore.

If mirror neurons in humans establish a capacity for empathy, a purely social function, and social pain piggy backs like neural routes for registering magnitude and duration of perceptual pain, lighting up similar perceptual/pain/response regions of the brain, is not then there perceptual registration and response to the social just as with other senses?

If navigating the social follows like neurological systems and protective functions as seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, touching and balancing, is it not just a perceptual sense—the sense of social. And like other senses there is subtle, great and dysfunctioning degrees of acuity as a basis of individual difference along with the cognitive, psychological, and such.

Hmmmm. Just a thought (perhaps already thunk clunked by others, as originality is rather scarce, prior to it entering my head).
