The orientation association area gives us a sense of our body in time and space.

What would it be like without this part of the brain assuming everything else works normally?

Can the brain separate itself from the totality of everything? Can the person maneuver in the environment? Can the person know "he/she" exists without this tactile sense of separation and ability to identify? Can the person understand "life/death" without this separation?
