What is needed is an experiment showing that the behaviour of brains
can be simulated on a computer. For example, if Henry Markram's mouse
brain simulation is able to run a robot mouse that behaves just like a
real mouse, that would be confirmation of at least the possibility of
philosophical zombies. Theoretical rather than experimental
considerations then imply that these would in fact be conscious beings
rather than zombies.
