It must be some kind of nightmare, waking up one morning without perception of your own body. What scares me more, if proprioception is like the eyes of the body, and it fails – we can compensate it by using vision, but what would happen if we were actually visually impaired? Reading text like this should reminds us about the value of health. On the other hand, being permanently aware of every single process taking place in one’s body would be extremely overwhelming. In that case, being „unable to notice something because it is always before one’s eyes” may be nothing else but brains way to prevent an overloading.
