Re: "Second Chances" and its disturbing implications

I see no merit in the idea that "duplicate" is the antithesis of "continuation". The two concepts have nothing to do with each other: originals or duplicates or triplicates can all be continuations equally well, provided they don't exhibit a discontinuity of some sort. If the duplication process is perfect, then by definition there is no discontinuity: A is B1 but also B2. And we have no reason to think the duplication process would be imperfect.
