I think the problem is that the zombie has the 1p of whatever is doing the computation, not of the living cells and organs of a living person. I think everything has a 1p experience, it's just that human 1p is a lot different from the 1p of out zoological, biological, chemical, and physical subselves. A zombie talks the talk, but it doesn't walk the walk. It's just a puppet which walks some other walk which it has no awareness of.
