Is Emilia Clarke a philosophical zombie?

For those that don’t know, Emilia Clarke, the actress who played Danaerys on Game of Thrones, had suffered two life-threatening strokes a few year ago, and now chunks of her brain are missing.
A philosophical zombie (also sometimes called a “p-zombie”) is one who is outwardly normal but does not have conscious experience. A person may walk and talk like anyone else, but behind the eyes there’s no processing of information or emotions, though it may like there is due to outward expressions that would seem to indicate such things. It is unknown whether or not there are p-zombies in the real world, as this is a philosophical problem, but whenever I see Emilia Clarke now, I wonder if she’s actually an automaton in a skinsuit acting as a simulacrum of a human being.

      And you only use 3% of your floorspace since you aren't standing on every part of it at all times.

    How do you measure conscious experience?

      Personal account. We have to believe others have a consciousness or fall into the trap of solipsism.

    No, the brain is just very resilient. It's like a scratched CD. It will run like normal but crash suddenly when it looks for non existent data.

      She still acts so she can still memorize lines, I guess she's fine

      Do you think it’s possible for the consciousness part of the brain (the part that makes you “you”) to die while the body and “mind” (mind, in this sense, meaning cognitive faculties—not inner experience, or “qualia”) keep going?

        there is evidence that the body stores memories just like your brain, and there are neurons just like in your brain inside your stomach. Consciousness is more than just your brain.

    You can lose like half your brain and the other half will make up for it for the most part. A few chunks is nothing.

    I guarantee you there are philosophical zombies. I have met a few in my life. Never heard the term before but there are a few that stand-out in particular. There was one that was absolutely a zombie from brain damage. He was a DJ that got jumped outside of a club and had to have tubes drain fluid from inside his brain. Another was a girl who is a Mormon actress. Her entire life has been heavily curated from Mormon upbringing as well as being a fullblow, admitted psychopath. She's one of those chicks that has literally never experienced hardship, heartbreak, unhappiness, or has any real negative attributes at all. Talking to her you know there is absolutely nothing going on behind those eyes.

      Philosophical zombie-hood is not a measure of intellect.
      The greatest supercomputer in the world that could outthink any human is still very likely not sentient and would be a P-zombie.
      The dumbest nignog in the world could still have an inner experience and be sentient - just a moronic and deficient sentience.

        This thread is about a show though. It's about some person. This board is for the discussion of television and film.
