The brain can process data as it is listening (like buffering a video
download) and likely predict the final word before it is done being
uttered. To prove the brain somehow overcomes this half second delay
in a convincing way, you would need to engineer an experiment where a
number flashes on a screen and a person has to push the right button
in under half a second. If you need two brains involved, then put a
screen between them with a computer screen and number pad facing each
one. Each time one person enters the right number, a new number
appears on the other person's screen. And it goes back and forth
which each person pressing the button as quickly as they can after the
new number appears. If this experiment shows the interaction can take
place faster than the video processing of the visual centers in the
brain then this would become a problem worth trying to solve. I'm not
convinced there is any problem here that can't be explained using
I am saying that what we actually observe in experiments as the 1/2
sec delay is the window where things are simultaneous. From the inside
there is no delay. That is what needs to be explained, no?
