the story continued...

The XXII World Congress of Philosophy 2008 inaugurated emergency gathering to solve this philosophical zombie problem.

Chalmers: We must find the neural correlates of consciousness.

Searle: No, lock them up in the Chinese room and see if they "understand" Chinese.

Kim: No, we must find the condition for these zombies to supervene consciousness again.

Putnam & Fodor: No, we should make consciousness to be not reducible to physics. Let's make these philosophical zombies multiply realizable!

Paul & Patricia Churchland: It's all over, everyone. Folk psychology is completely lost in them. They are all goners...

Turing: First thing is first. Make them write a Turing test and let's see if they are zombies or not.

McGinn: Fuck it. Chalmers is right. We cannot solve the Hard Problem of consciousness.
