    It’s actually much worse than that! When I look at the stars, such as Sirius in the night sky, the light from those stars took years to reach us. Even sunlight takes minutes to reach us from the sun’s surface.

    So, compared to the lack of real time viewing of many the things I see, a 0.15 millisecond delay in my brain is insignificant.
