Proprioception

Proprioception is one of the main sensory inputs to the body, and arguably one of the most important. Unlike sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and balance, proprioception is an unconscious sense. That is to say it is one we are feeling all the time, and rarely if ever creeps into the conscious mind unless we actually sit down and think about it. This vital sense forms much of our internal awareness. The other senses deal with the outside world only, but proprioception is intimately linked to our sense of self.

It is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body. Every joint, every muscle feeds back into proprioception, helping us know at all times, in the subconscious back of the mind, where our body is, which way it is orientated, and how it is shaped.

Proprioception
Proprioception is one of the main standard senses of the body, and arguably one of the most important. Unlike sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and balance, proprioception is an unconscious sense. That is to say it is one we are feeling all the time, and rarely if ever creeps into the conscious mind unless we actually sit down and think about it.

Concept of Self - Exposed?
Proprioception may not be the stumbling block to true immersion we have always considered it to be.

Visual Pathways the same, With or Without Eyes
A surprising find that pure touch-based sense organisms like hydras and jellyfish are capable of detecting changes in light levels in localised areas, strongly suggests that sight developed as part of the touch sense - and that some form of sight sensor is ideal when proprioception is not workable.

Opening The Prison
There is a necessity to virtualise every basic part of a person's body in order to create a virtual shell that is as comfortable or more comfortable than the original physical shell. It goes beyond the basic external senses, it goes beyond proprioception, and into the realm of, as the Matrix films would say "residual self image". It is necessary to create a form complete and intricate enough that the person whose mind is inside it can walk in front of a reflective surface, look in and feel 'that's me.'
