The "zombie apocalypse" is a favorite subject of cinema, novels, short stories, and even jokes.
(Have you heard the chant from the zombie protest:
Leader: What do we want?!?
Leader: When do we it?!?
Not the highest functioning mob in the area. But they have a knack for conversion. So, when your late neighbor shows up to pick your brain, It's open season, right?
So, here's the question. Are your zombie assailants self-aware? When you shoot out the rotted flesh, Are they angry? Scared? Hurt? What's their level of cognitive engagement? Can a zombie choose to starve, in the face of eating a person? What are zombie ethics?
Let's start with self-aware: Yes? or No?
