    If this is what you're day dreaming about, may I suggest a hobby?

    Trying to have a scientific, unbiased discussion with a young earth creationist usually does the trick...

    Since I'm not sure what you meant exactly by "normal", I'll just answer the question based on what little I've read about.


    • If you meant it in the way of consuming one's own body parts orally and with regular digestion; nail biting. That is if you consider our nails as flesh.
    • If not consumption through the mouth and and with regular digestion; autophagy does fit the description somewhat.


    Should neither of those be what you are looking for, perhaps you can look up the term self cannibalism.
