Zombies on the web

Abstract
Zombies are hypothetical creatures of the sort that philosophers have been known to cherish. A zombie is physically identical to a normal human being, but completely lacks conscious experience. Zombies look and behave like the conscious beings that we know and love, but "all is dark inside." There is nothing it is like to be a zombie.

This question has no doubt been asked before but 'If there is nothing it is like to be a zombie', how is it possible to conceive of one - even hypothetically?  How can one even say it is "all is dark inside" or that "A zombie is physically identical to a normal human being"?, both descriptions depending on known states/characteristics - 'darkness' and being 'physically identical to a human being'.
