Zombie philosophy

Interesting debate here
The zombification of philosophy (of mind)

the bad news is that Jay seemed to want me to do
the hard
I.e. to give him a problem where he cant concieve it is possible and then to show him it is impossible

and worse yet
the contradictory
I.e. to explain why square circles are impossible for different reasons than a physically impossible structure (which was exactly my point - they aren't)
and to show that bottles ae diferent from humans for reasons other than that humans are physically humans (but the latter was my point and a fundamental part of physicalism)

Oh well I knew that debate probably would end up in that sort of frustration.
