I believe that it is, but should not be attempted on human beings until we have mastered the prosses. This belief is based upon my assumption that there are two ways in which we live on after death. The first naturally is genetically, our children are the physical aspect of our continuance. The second is how we affect those around us, generally the more contact with an individual, the more influence we have upon thier lives and the lives of whom they will affect, of course there are instances when an individual may affect many in very strong ways long into the future, I wonder if Jesus, Darwin, even Steven Hawkins realized or realize the dramatic influnce they have had and will have upon the daily lives of so many. Anyhow, The strongest influence you have is within you're children, both aspects are encomassed here, and how you percieve this is going to affect the nature of this infuence, so make it the best possible experiance. Of course to be cloned would be strange in that it would be a 99.9 percent genetic copy of yourself from the time of birth, but the experiance would be all original. Thus, to be cloned would be to promote yourself as nature has you to do, only in a more dramatic (pure) way. I look forward to all thoughts on this subject.
