Christopher Hills identifies this faculty with the colour red. This would seem to correspond to the extrovertive or yang polarity of the lower emotional body. This is the second energy field body in in Barbara Ann Brennans system of etheric-auric bodies.
Concerning this personality type Christopher Hills says
Sensation typeChristopher Hills, Nuclear Evolution - Discovery of the Rainbow Body, p.613 (1977, University of the Trees Press)
Orientated to transient external stimuli. the impulsive manipulation of objects affecting touch and experiences in the immediate now. without much awareness of past or future events. His concrete
self is not related to flow of time which is always now. Relates all sensations to self pleasure or self pain and is unaware of inner worlds of others unless they are useful for purposes of self-esteem. The colour red brings on reactiveness and physical excitement, related to anger, pugnacity. aggressiveness, sensation, intensity, physical bully.
This would presumably be the same as the extrovert Sensation type of Carl Jung.
Christopher Hills identifies the red sensation consciousness with the muladhara or base chakra. Because he includes sexuality here, his muladhara is actually the same as the muladhara plus the swadhisthana of other authors. The only other philosopher who has the same interpretation of the muladhara is Sri Aurobindo.
According to Mantak Chia, the muladhara and the swadhisthana are distinct but closely related, and can be considered together for meditation purposes.
