jothki has reported a post.

Reason:
I keep imaging a horde of moaning zombies shambling towards a dualist philosopher, and him just standing there watching them and shaking his head sadly.

Nope, not going to work.

Do like Qualia though. Don't know what it would be like to not have them. I feel bad for you guys that don't have them, and are zombies.

The true tragedy of the zombie is that a brain is not sufficient no matter how many they get.

    Aside from this probably being incomprehensible to most people, it's not particularly awesome.

    Is this supposed to be a comparison of zombies to junkies

    If so, it could have been done better than this

    Still, it isn't face-rapingly bad

    "face-rapingly" is an adverb i'd like to see used more often.

    In most contexts, it's kind of forced.

    I suppose that eye-rape is technically a part of face-rape, if you want to deal with images that make you want to claw your eyes out after looking at them.

    Face-rape as a whole really isn't done, though, unless you're some sort of hideous alien monstrosity.

    It's a philosophy thing. Dualism is the theory that consciousness somehow exists or works outside of the physical brain. Zombies are theoretical people who are physically indistinguishable from and act the same way as normal people, but don't actually experience qualia, and thus don't have real minds despite having physically functional brains.

    You could even say face-rapingly forced.

    It was just a joke about zombie's eating brains.

    Since in philosophy, zombies are like this thing that looks and acts like a person but has no thoughts inside.

    But, I think that's kind of why they call them zombies, so it isn't really so much a joke.
