    Default Meeting your clone... how does it feel?

    If you were to be replicated, instantly, yielding an exact copy of yourself with the same memories and consciousness up to the moment of replication, how would it feel to meet and interact with the "other you"? This is assuming you meet immediately after replication, so neither of you would have had any unique memories or experiences.

    I think it would be extremely uncomfortable for me, and freak me out. To meet someone who knew exactly everything that was in my head, and I theirs. And to see my likeness and mannerisms from the outside. It would feel like I had lost control of my reflection in the mirror. I always feel a little strange seeing myself on video, but I have a consciousness that it's a recording. This person would be live and interactive, self-aware, and aware of me. This physical perception is something identical twins experience, at least to some degree. But the thought of having an identical twin feels strange to me, too. But having a recently replicated copy, with replicated consciousness, really creeps me out.

    How would you feel meeting a copy of yourself, memories and all? What would interacting with them be like?

    Sadly, I've actually considered this concept before

    My thoughts were based somewhat on one of Grimm's Fairy Tales- I'd split from them, agreeing to meet up every year or so and see how our lives were going- if they were the same or different. That would be rather interesting to see

    Cloning me would create an implosion of the Universe due to awesomeness overload.

    One of us would have to die. There can only be one me.

    Anyway, I'd be freaked out. I'd probably move to another country or another planet, excuse the encounter for lunacy and live the rest of my days in blissful denial.

    Well I thought it through and I think, my clone and I would not recognize one or the other. We would just pass by, looking at the other that somewhat looks familiar and then we would go on doing what we are currently doing.

    Like thinking about, why we constantly see people that look familiar

    We'd probably hang out for a few hours, then part ways.
