Okay. But that's contradictory to what you originally said. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...


How so?

Phantom limb isn't real limb. If anything, phantom limb is proof of the inadequacy of mind theories. It shows that mind does not remain where the leg once was, although it can lead to sensations of the body that deceive one into thinking so.

You said:


He will no longer gain leg experiences and leg memories and leg feelings as if he did when he had legs.


Then I proved that wrong with phantom pain. Then you contradicted your above statement and admitted that feelings, or "sensations", can be experienced after the loss of a limb when you said:



But without the legs once being there, no such sensation would arise.


So, you originally said, "sensation will not happen at all once a limb is lost". Then after I showed you how that wasn't true with phantom pain, you changed what you're saying to, "Well, it does happen under certain circumstances."
