I agree that zombies do not make a lot of sense ... assuming comp. But if we forget all
assumptions, the concept of zombie makes logical sense. It is someone behaving like you

I don't think that's reason. It's just that it is a successful model in dealing with
other people to assume the are like yourself. Notice that this same intuition works the
other way too and makes it hard from some people to believe a robot could be conscious -
it's just not like "me" inside.
