Image that a woman has died and she’s been dead for over a week. A zombie apocalypse is taking place and she comes back to life and goes on the prowl to eat flesh and brains.

Is it physically possible for this zombie (humans who come back to life after they’ve died) to exist and survive her encounter with Michonne? Describe how we can determine if something is physically possible.
A Note on Writing Assignments in this Class:
The ultimate purpose of every writing submission is to clearly and correctly explain and apply philosophical material in your own words. When writing your responses, imagine that the reader is not in the class and is entirely unfamiliar with the material. If the only introduction to the topic she has was your paper, would it give her proper understanding of the issues? It is imperative that your submissions are in your own words, using sentences that you could use in conversation. Using someone else’s words, or making slight changes to words from the text or another source, do not prove that you understand this material, so explaining things yourselfis vital. Submissions will be evaluated using plagiarism detection software.
