Physicalism and Consciousness

Please explain to me how Sam Harris “defeated” Chopra. All he did was admit that consciousness has no access to physicalist explanations (and by implication, physicalist explanations have no access to consciousness).

See Nagel, “What is it Like to be a Bat”

Can he be so blind to his problem?
