I came across this question on the internet the other day and was pleased to see that I am not the only one to wonder...

If we had no eyes then we would be unaware of the existence of color.
What if we are missing an entire aspect of everything simply because we do not have the organ to detect it?

I have often considered that many truths presented in the Bible will often seem cryptic because we will not ever really be able to comprehend until we are in our glorified bodies. 

Scripture:1 Corinthians 15:49 & Mark 8:18 for starters... :D

Throughout the history of mankind God has had secrets that he revealed in His time. Are there still things out there that God the Father has chosen to not yet reveal to mankind?  I think up to this point the greatest secret revealed to mankind is twofold. They are Jesus Christ our savior and salvation by grace and grace alone.

Colossians Chapter 1
21 And you -- once being alienated, and enemies in the mind, in the evil works, yet now did he reconcile,
22 in the body of his flesh through the death, to present you holy, and unblemished, and unblameable before himself,
23 if also ye remain in the faith, being founded and settled, and not moved away from the hope of the good news, which ye heard, which was preached in all the creation that [is] under the heaven, of which I became -- I Paul -- a ministrant.
24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and do fill up the things lacking of the tribulations of the Christ in my flesh for his body, which is the assembly,
25 of which I -- I did become a ministrant according to the dispensation of God, that was given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God,
26 the secret that hath been hid from the ages and from the generations, but now was manifested to his saints,
27 to whom God did will to make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this secret among the nations -- which is Christ in you, the hope of the glory,
28 whom we proclaim, warning every man, and teaching every man, in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus,
29 for which also I labour, striving according to his working that is working in me in power.

Ephesians 2:7-9 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

7 that He might show, in the ages that are coming, the exceeding riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus,
8 for by grace ye are having been saved, through faith, and this not of you -- of God the gift,
9 not of works, that no one may boast;
