Can you pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time?

yes. It's really easy. It's just a matter of concentration. People can multitask. The thing about not being able to do it is something to do with your arms wanting to do the same thing as each other but, if you think about all the other things you do which require each arm/hand working independently, even simple things such as eating with a knife and fork, you'll see why there is no reason not to be able to rub your stomach and pat your head at the same time.
