Tickle Your Fancy

Why are we ticklish? Nerves, basically. Nerves in your hands, nerves in your feet. Sensory attenuation tells your brain which actions require attention from it. This measure is there to give your brain help. -and it's also the reason you can't tickle yourself. A tickle won't hurt. It's nothing like pain. It's not quite a warning. It's not quite the same. So why do we feel it? Isn't it weird? There must be a reason that tickling is here! Maybe because you can't do it alone, and since it's not warning that danger is prone, it could be a message advice we should live making contact with others, there's nothing like it!
