Handicap

Since even the smallest physical handicap of our appearance bothers many of us because of others’ negative reactions, we may calculate how much we delivered to society our body.

Strangely enough for being recognized in an epoch which praises the individual freedom, it means that we delivered to society what essentially represents our individuality. What does remain from someone’s individuality if it is excluded his body?

To compensate such a loss, we try to claim the ownership of our body in the field of imagination, since there we cannot be seen by anyone. Therefore, the imaginary views about ourselves often take the precise and hard form of a body which belongs entirely to us. ‘I’ from our thoughts is often overestimated and the history finally can count only a few of real ‘I-s’ in a century.
