Are there non-human zombies? Yes, they’ve been documented in a number of cases, most recently Zombeavers, as well as some non-fiction zombie animals created by parasites.
But what about non-human, non-organic zombies? Those exist, too, but mostly in the realm of metaphor. In the past, we’ve seen zombie banks and zombie economic theories. More recently, we’ve seen zombie foreclosures, zombie health plans, zombie scientific studies, zombie airline tickets, zombie spacecraft, and zombie venture capital firms.
Are there any examples of non-human, non-organic, non-metaphorical zombies? Would the computers in a botnet count? What if they were incorporated into the net by means of a computer virus?
