One that's not there is what psychiatry labels the "sixth sense".
proprioception, in relation to external space and position.

Slightly different to the usual proprioception/kinesthesia which is about where your own limbs etc are - which is the sense that goes when alcohol is imbibed in large quantities.

The external one is what gives us our ability to walk through a room eye's closed, or to put a mob of blindfolded people together and watch them through the proprioception sense not bump into each other (it's a skill to improve the sense awareness)

There's also the Qi sense that we use in ninjitsu. Basically a version of blindman's bluff (or group of blindsman bluff), and opponents singularly attack the blindfolded person. The intent can be felt as soon as the attack makes the decision to move
