Re: phantom limbs
As they are not physical, my personal view is that they do not directly affect the physical world.

Re: phantom limbs
If you did, it wasn't your phantom limbs - the most likely cause is an overactive imagination. The general consensus is that they can't influence the physical world, as Miniar stated.

Re: phantom limbs
I've seen people claim that their phantom limbs can affect the physical world. The most common claim I've come across is phantom wings/tails knocking objects over. I tend to take such claims with a heap of salt. As Miniar said, it's highly unlikely for a non-physical limb to affect the physical world.

Re: phantom limbs
As stated above, I also have yet to have seen an actual case in which phantom limbs will effect anything tangible.


However!
There have been plenty of cases in which others will compensate for one's phantom limbs as well as they might notice if one touches/brushes another person - intentionally or by accident.

Granted, not everyone will say "Hey, can you get yerr wings outta my face?"
Even those who are sensitive may not recognize or acknowledge the sensations that they're feeling your limbs.
[[Sensitive..Sensations..Feeling.. Redundant sentence of redundancy?]]

I believe this is because humans, or 'kin are able to notice the changes in energy, even if it's not necessarily on this plane. They feel it.
Unless they're completely numb.

Re: phantom limbs
Perception can also do funny things - in high stress situations (eg being shot at, dealing with emergencies, competitive sports) some people report a sensation that time slows down to a crazy degree. I've experienced it myself - in sporting situations it's part of being "in the Zone", and not uncommon. I can absolutely see that while a fall wouldn't be physically slowed by energetic wings, using one's wings to "glide" could lead to a shift in awareness in which everything seemed to slow down.

Re: phantom limbs
When adrenaline kicks in, in reaction to the "fight or flight" instinct, it quickens more than our heart-rate.
As the brain goes into chemically induced overdrive, the world around us feels as if it slows down.
