@ Schrodinger's Cat:

Thanks very much for linking to that video. It's the first time I ever experienced Chalmers, and I must admit most of his statements were thoroughly unconvincing. It seemed like every one of them essentially said "consciousness is real to me".

I can imagine zombies who are identical to Chalmers in every detail, except that they lack frizzelmorpishness.

I look around and see colors: reds, and greens, and blues. All of these FEEL a certain way to me... they have a quality of experience."

Or, perhaps Chalmers has simply learned to expound on these topics in a colorful and sophisticated language that instills in people a sense that there's something missing from the picture (when there really isn't).
