I don’t think you could test it because we’re not the same people twice. Your mind would have to be in the same state in was in both times to be tested; cleared of the toast that burnt that morning or the nagging toothache that got a little worse or the slight stomach gurgle. There’s a lot of changes out of our control and it’s true that certain tested impulses start their travels 400ms prior to full grammatical response capabilities – likely 170ms prior to pre-verbal awareness (where you’re aware but can’t put the words together in your brain just yet), . But I don’t think lag time is proof of it being out of our control; it takes 1/4 – 1/2 of a second for our nervous systems to construct reality out of all the diverse senses yet when it’s together, we work with it; it’s a synchronized lag time. A dance.
