Zombie Futurist Wants Bra-a-a-a-a-ins!
I have an exchange with Robot Cultist "Luke" – an occasional visitor hereabouts – at the bottom of the Moot for this post. "Luke" is annoyed by these two sentences from that post: "No, futurologists, you are not a picture of you. No, futurologists, you cannot pretend to be a strict materialist about consciousness all the while proceeding as if the actual materialization of consciousness in organismic brains is somehow irrelevant." By all means, do go spar with him if you are so inclined. I'm prepping for a long teaching day tomorrow, and fear I'll be too scarce to keep up conversationally.
