Phantom Limps & Phantom pain Illusion
An illusion is a situation where an individual mind creates a situation that is real in the brain but does not exist in the reality; it is usually a false representation of a reality. This is usually caused by activities of nerve endings which continue to transmit information to the brain. When the brain misinterprets the information, it results to an illusion. Phantom limps are subjective illusion whereby, they exists only in the brains and thus not a reality. This is different from objective stimuli which a person self activates to actualize a given purpose. Therefore, the major difference between subjective illusion and objective stimuli is that objective is intended by the individual while the subjective is not.
