Abstract. The article is a multidisciplinary study written in the spirit of a philosophical and medical essay. The obstacle is a binary opposition "materialness/immaterialness". The author in the company of O. Sacks shows what it means to be "not quite oneself", "not in ones body" or entirely lose the feeling of such. It is ascertained that the fact of possessing body isnt a priori entity, it is extremely problematic. In the conclusion the researcher formulates a maxim: "To perceive ones own body is to exist" - simple, but unobvious truth about oneself and each of us.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , , , "", body, immaterialness, proprioception, soul, spiritual impoverishment, existence, self, "I".
