I was in philosophy class today and the professor told us to close our eyes, then said “unicorn”.
She then told us to open our eyes and asked what first popped into our heads.
Most of us pictured a white unicorn (i pictured the one from those Ice Breakers commercials lol).
But this one guy across the room from me said he didn’t picture a unicorn at all.
He said that he felt a unicorn horn atop his head. In all seriousness.
A phantom horn.
The rest of the class just kind of giggled and moved on, but I sat there smiling to myself for a while after that .
Nonhuman phantom sensations are not limited to otherkin.
It was super great to see that in action today! You always see people saying that but I hardly ever see someone mention it outside the context of otherkin.
