The same applies to other persons. It may be that the world is made of
zombie-actors that try to cheat me, but I have an harcoded belief in
the conventional thing.   Maybe it is, because otherwise, I will act
in strange and self destructive ways. I would act as a paranoic, after
that, as a psycopath (since they are not humans). That will not be
good for my success in society. Then,  I doubt that I will have any
surviving descendant that will develop a zombie-solipsist
epistemology.

However there are people that believe these strange things. Some
autists do not recognize humans as beings like him. Some psychopaths
too, in a different way. There is no authistic or psichopathic
epistemology because the are not functional enough to make societies
with universities and philosophers. That is the whole point of
evolutionary epistemology.


If comp leads to solipsism, I will apply for being a plumber.

I don't bet or believe in solipsism.

But you were saying "that a *conscious* robot" can lack a soul. See the quote just below.

That is what I don't understand.

?

You mean it is a zombie?

I can't conceive consciousness without a soul. Even if only the universal
one.
So I am not sure what you mean by soul.
