Have you ever taken a step back from your group of friends and wished that you could have a group of friends that are all exactly like you? I mean, identical copies: looks, personality, demeanor, everything.
If you haven’t, you shouldn’t. If you have, you’re probably a narcist.
That’s right. I just called you a narcist.
The discussions among yourselves would be interesting at first, but there would be nothing to discuss because you know everything everybody else knows, and nobody would know anything you don’t.
Plus, the worst sides of your personality would come out and start beating each other up. Y’know. Stuff like that.
But wait a minute. If you have exact copies of yourself that aren’t connected cranially, would it be possible for your copies to have individual thought? If so, would they actually be yourself? What if one of your copies came up with an idea? Who would get the credit?
Maybe if you had the goodwill to not just accept the idea as your own, maybe you’d be able to share the credit with all of you. But would you actually deserve it? Well, it comes from your mind, right?
