"This is not a phobia because the aversion does not impair the subject. It is however a very real and natural reaction. Your discomfort (e.g. skin crawling, shivering, nausea, etc.) is an automatic reaction of the sympathetic nervous system known as horripilation.
Horripilation and its associated mechanisms like piloerection (goosebumps) are a legacy genetic trait that serve to protect us as a 'fight-or-flight' response to inminent threat (like hurt, wounds, infection, etc.)"
She goes onto say...
"The senses, are the 'language' of your brain. When you see a flawed texture, the way in which your brain interprets it is by formulating and reenacting all associated 'feelings' about it.
When it goes around trying to formulate holes in your tact for you to accurately digest this disturbing visual data, it overwhelms the somatosensory cortex by demanding it to portray data it can not process. The very X/Y coordinates for you to, say, 'feel' the depth of each hole, simply do not exist in your neurons' history."
"There is nothing you can do to avoid this reaction (and perhaps might even go as far as to congratulate yourself for having a greater density of proprioception than others). But there is something you can do to get rid of the discomfort after experiencing the horripilation.
Quite simply, just go ahead and rub your own skin. With the full surface of your hand palms, go on and rub your arms, your neck, anywhere you feel the piloerection (goosebumps).
You will notice that the eeriness is actually replaced with a satisfactory sensation of comfort, because what you're doing is you're overriding the anomalous data that your visual cortex interpreted from the flawed texture picture, with real data of the hypothetic surface when, as you rub your own skin, and find out that in fact, you do not possess such lesions."
your somatosensory cortex is trying to know dat feel but it can't know dat feel because it never had dat feel
it's not a phobia just a natural reaction
rub skin where you are experiencing goosebumps with full surface of hand. (arms, neck, ect.)
realize you do not possess these irregularities on your body
I'm I the only one who started to poke around their jaw, after looking at the first pic.
Also, lmao tryptophobia... I remember seeing a photoshopped pic of the Lotus sea plant, on a girls knees, arms, and face and everyone is disgusted by it. It's not even that bad, its actually interesting.
