I don't believe in philosophical zombies. I use puppet because a puppet
absence of conscious presence, which is an ordinary condition of
as we seem them, because the sensation associated with them belongs to a
frame (microcosm). A zombie is supernatural because rather than the seeming
of presence (normal), they imply the presence of absence, which is
cannot exist. There can be no undead, only the unlive.
Puppet implies a puppeteer. In a sense our bodies are puppets controlled by our brains.
So there is a conscious presence.
I wonder if there are psychological conditions that are similar to philosophical
zombiehood? I.e. doing things as though conscious when you aren't. (Maybe sleep walking?)
Or proving theorems in mathematics, c.f. Poincare effect.
