Open peer commentary on the article “The Plasticity of the Bodily Self: Head Movements in Bodily Illusions and Their Relation to Gallagher’s Body Image and Body Schema” by Marte Roel Lesur, Michael Gaebler, Philippe Bertrand & Bigna Lenggenhager. Abstract: Conflicting and puzzling results in bodily illusions research might arise because researchers have been operating under the false premise that they were studying illusions. I suggest that the rubber-hand and full-body illusions are not illusions after all, but something else entirely, and believing otherwise is succumbing to the illusion illusion.
