I think I can...

Instead of correcting the brain, the cosmic beams trigger output
neurons in a sequence that makes Alice write the right answers. That
is to say, the information content of the beams is no longer a
representation of an area of Alice's brain, but a representation of
the answers to the exam. An outside observer cannot distinguish one
case from the other. In the first she is Alice, in the second she is a
zombie.
