Vsauce, in this video, You Live In The Past, viewed over 5 million times, claims that when you tap your nose and your toes at the same time, they feel as if they happened at the exact same time (which they did, but it takes longer for the signal to reach your brain from your feet than from your face) because the brain waits a short period of time before processing the two sensory inputs to mitigate the difference in time due to distance traveled.
Since it's waiting on signals that haven't arrived yet, I'd assume that means the brain has to always assume a signal might be coming from further away, and as Vsauce says, if you're taller, that means you're always living further in the past than someone who's shorter than you.
If this is accurate, that would be incredible. Maybe it is, but I'm skeptical. Does the brain really delay processing of sensory data based on how tall you are in order to improve comprehension accuracy of the senses?
And if so, how does the brain figure out how long to delay (or in other words, how tall you are)?
