As Ludwig Wittgenstein said “things that are most important for us are hidden”. We can’t notice some of the things because they are always there. That’s exactly how the sense of proprioception works. It’s automatic and unconscious.
Christina’s case is strange because she lost something she didn’t realise she had. And when she lost proprioception she started to appreciate the life she used to live.
