The primacy of skin

The first experience we had is mediated by skin and lived as touch , feeling.

Without skin there is no felt experience, there is feeling of being embodied.

Our body is given to us through touching, using our skin as perceptual system.

This make skin part of cognitive system, the input and output parts ,the brain act as processor that integrate skin systemic function.
