That 'HeritageDaily' is a great site, Marty --I just got lost following links in there again.

It takes a while to sort out all the structures in the head that changed in this evolution, but: very interesting!

That's interesting. It also makes sense -- it turns out to support a command center, shorter nerve travel to response times. It's a good CPU design. Plus, imagine all the crunching sounds if your ears were on the bottom of your feet. (I know ... butterflies have their taste buds on their feet ... but their eyes are on their "head.") Same with opposing thumbs -- big toes as the main manipulators would be problematic.
