Interesting thing, pain. Do we feel it where, for example, we are wounded or in the brain/mind? How does this reconcile with people's experiences of phantom limbs?
If it's about nerve endings being related to sensitivity to pain how do we brace for it, for example as we fall, so that effectively we "manage expectations of pain"?
How do anaesthetics and analgesics affect the process of experiencing pain? Sleep? Coma?
