Say you were able to essentially make a clone of an adult. At the point where the two would separate, then the clone would essentially become an independent living entity, unless there was some way to recombine the knowledge from the clone.With limited attention, it may not be possible for one brain to control two bodies simultaneously.
On earth, there are already remote control operations.For example, military drones are controlled by pilots far away from the action.
I have read somewhere that the biological species completely recycle their atoms within 7 years. If that is correct then in some sense I am a clone of myself 7 years ago. The "original" (or better said "initial") structure was destroyed in a sense that the original atoms were "thrown away" in some random context. Yet, this type of 'cloning' does not lead to different individuality or a different consciousness of the cloned person, probably because the hierarchy of atoms/molecules and the their functions are preserved precisely. ----An intriguing question may be: If (say nondestructive) cloning can create a second perfect replica without destroying the original structure, then do we actually have 2 bodies controlled by one single individuality and one single consciousness?
