After you die, your eyes continue to see for up to five hours

As in the “happy” in Happy Mutants, sometimes the Wonderful Things are “wonderful” ironically

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Zombies by parts are going to be great! There’s the seeing zombie, directing the running zombie; “no, lurchier!” it directs, as the chorus zombies make a convincing “Braaiinnns” matte. Kind of telegraphs the “Now bite!” part, but by extension we get the self-uncrashing car, which is totally on to people (or maybe just heads) fixated on crashes.

“It appears you are trying to crash spectacularly while dealing technical damage to a T-Mobile Pop-Up, would you like some help with that?”

eta: The eyes have to be treated just so to see 5h. after death of the host. They are energetically demanding. Murine study? Not as cool as if -incomprehensible things- were what you’d see. Q explainers. Xinu. MTG backpedaling before passage of the year. Biden quoting Baidu (the poet in translation.) Spiderman: The News Boss Totally Sells Enough Papers, Escapes Private Equity, And Funds A Newsroom Unhindered, By Publishing Pictures of Spiderman. Watchable stuff, if only…

That does seem like good reason for suspicion that subjective experience may well be unrelated to these goings on in the eyes; but given the sort of image processing witchcraft and outright lying the visual cortex gets up to it wouldn’t be surprising if the subjective experience of that system shutting down hard would be at least as nuts(if likely a lot shorter) than anything you’d get in the case of dying eyes connected to a healthy nervous system.
