Thinking of each group of philosophers is denying in one of the premises of the causal argument for physicalism. So it is to the status of qualia that turns first in the discussion of the adequacy of physicalism. Considering the negative part of Chalmers's argument: the thought-experiments that purportedly show the inadequacy of physicalism. The argument have looked at against physicalism is of a fairly conservative sort. The quotation above talks of "a molecular model for the wind", which introduces something new to the argument that is stated here. The simplest examples of cases such as these in classical mechanics are pendulum motion, the orbit of the planets and the motions of springs. Consciousness, they claim, is not a physical phenomenon and has no effect on the physical. In fact, they make an even more specific claim.
