It's a philosophical essay that can be written in the 1st person, and so is not formal, because of the use of informal rules.
The essay is about whether or not non-humans can be persons with minds.
the question for effect is:
What about automatons or extra-terrestrial beings?
which starts a paragraph explaining how Automatons can be persons with minds.
