Unconscious intentional zombies
Unconscious intentional zombies—zombies with thoughts about the world—should be a logical possibility in a theory of consciousness. The connection principle's demand that all intentionality and thinking be accessible to consciousness rules them out.
...therefore Searle's Connection Principle is false.

Ned Block (1990) as articulated by John Searle (1990a).
