The consciousness discussion keeps invoking “zombies”, the hypothetical idea of beings that behave exactly the same as everyone else but have no subjective experience. In keeping with the ongoing series of jokes that Joe and I have about all this stuff, maybe a thriller about Tibetan Buddhist theories of consciousness where the primordial luminosity was extinguished could have everyone turn into “dzombies”. (we copyright this idea so don’t mess with us!)
