Reply To: “The Disembodied Lady” (Year 1 Thur.)

Ludwig Wittgenstein’s quote, for me, means that we don’t think about something, we already have, untill we lose it. For example, nobody thinks about being able to see until they lose their sight. Of course we know we see, but we don’t think about it all the time. “The Disembodied Lady” was about something like that, but this woman “loses” all of her body; she stopped feeling that her body belongs to her. When I looked at Christina’s story I started to contemplate what would I do in her situation, without the feeling that my own body is mine and only thing i can do is try to live with it because i can’t change it. Her case was interesting to me because she was the only one that has this condition.
What do all of you think about it?
