This is an amusing empirical test for zombiehood -- do you agree with Daniel Dennett?

Only zombies will agree they don't have qualia? Not if their programming catches on and disguises itself better.

Better for a zombie to hide as someone like Searle, who's constantly insisting that he has qualia (which is true) and that there is no possible scientific explanation for this ever (which is false).
