Sure its a copy but a bad one..


It look like me but it NOT....

If I had cancer and I wasn't sure ALcor et al will work.. it might
want to "buy" a clone and leave him a piece of my estate...

but if I wanted to leave a legacy I, PERSONALLY, speaking would rather
leave money to soeone with the same MEME's rather than the same

e.g., rather leave money to a young and like minded Extropian than a
newborn clone (or even adult clone) who might not see eye to eye,
might be highly competitive w/ me or resentful of me, etc.
