"Let's play a pretendy fun time game... Let's think of the universe as information. And so are we. Our personalities are information. All life is information at the basest level. And everything is cyclical, ebb, flow, decay, renewal. You…"

"Being in two places at the same time (in the laundry room, climbing Mt. Everest) would be very confusing. I think the two consciousnesses would have to be discrete since they would be leading two different lives."

"I appreciate the info! I wasn't completely sure about the process of cloning, but what you are saying makes sense.  In a parallel sense I think you might be on to something. Maybe it is possible to have a consciousness in two places at…"

"In case I wasn't clear, an exact copy would have the same neural circuitry, so it would have all the memories of the original. It would (falsely) think it had that being's past, and it would essentially continue on from that point. Of…"

"Let's not talk about "energy" as though it = soul, the way some addle-brained New Agers do. The fact is that when a being (plant or animal) dies, it simply comes apart. The molecules are ingested by scavengers and bacteria. The bones…"

"You could give the clone all the memories of the original, but the real question is would it be the same consciousness or a brand new one with false memories? This is essentially the "Beam me up, Scotty" problem from Star Trek, where…"

"well i believe that when you die your energy has to go somewhere because energy that started on earth stays on earth. But I myself do not know if reincarnation is possible"

"Haha. The soul would be the conscious/subconscious mind. You're right, the clone would not wake up "aware" of his return, or existence. And if I may, what about birth? Do you think this clone would behave in similar fashion to that of…"

"Agreed. I come from a metaphysical/spiritual/mystical perspective as a way to help me understand existence. However I have full respect for science and its contributions to the world! Perhaps I also need further education in bio/chem and…"
