So, right off the bat I'm going to state that [highlight]this is not a thread about the moral ramifications or justification of cloning[/highlight]. Instead, we're going to imagine a scenario in which a loved one close to you has passed away - it could be through natural causes, unnatural causes, it doesn't matter. The focus on the thread here is this: Would you be able to live with a clone of that person? If the clone was identical, had the same memories, the same feelings - was in every manner an exact replica - would you still view the clone as you did the original? Would you be able to live with the clone like you once did with the original?
