I will outline a physicalist explanation of certain intuitions that are often thought to cast doubt on physicalism. The intuitions I have in mind are more or less those Chalmers discusses in [Chalmers 2018]. My explanation will recapitulate ideas from [Schwarz 2018], but here I will present the case more directly, abstracting away from the Bayesian framework assumed in that paper. I begin by describing the relevant intuitions, since I want to highlight a few points that Chalmers passes over.
