Relating to Libet's delay...

I found a post linking to, or hand-wavingly explaining Libet's apparent delay in consciousness...

This  was written December 10, 2008, a week before discovering I needed a surprise quintuple bypass surgery.  The idea is, or was, Libet measured a half second delay - neurons firing AFTER a response.  Consider that the response is actually done in  the ordered water level of  organization and the neuronal firing occurs afterwards when, for instance, the event is written to backup  memory  or sent for further reporting or coordination.

Think about it.
