A solution to Libet's puzzle

We can do one conscious act at any time. There are two time points in performing the Libet setup: (1) Time of decision and (2) time of conscious reading time from the clock. Therefore we either do (1) then (2) or (2) then (1). If time of (1) to (2) is bigger than (2) to (1) then Libet problem is resolved.

Physically yes, mentally no!
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

Have you never been in a situation where your mind tells you to do many things at once, but you have to stop and choose one to physically do? a flood of thoughts, that trigger a moment of a call to many actions, then either.. none are done out of sheer exacerbation and we give up, or one is settled on out of the need of necessity of having to get something out of the way before we can move on.

Having said that.. sometimes multi-tasking is the only option we have due to time constraints, and more than one task can be undertaken, but with a necessary focus applied to achieve the feat.
