Honey!! That’s My Double!!!!!
I bought her a gift and caught a cab to get home. When I opened the door, I saw myself feeding my girl her birthday cake … but wasn’t there something wrong here? I’m still at the door, Oh no!!! I’ve been cloned! I woke up with a start.
Though I had a headache to start up with, the dream got me thinking. What if cloning was a common deal? Well, we won’t need any more sheep for one. ‘Dolly’ is an old fad now; but imagine the future possibilities? For one we won’t need fake motivational speakers; we could deal directly with the masters themselves such as Mahatma Gandhi. I guess Martin Luther King would give an altered version of his speech called “I ‘had’ a dream”. It would be like an episode from ‘Futurama’ where the brains of the masters of that craft do all the important jobs. But the issue would be how many Hitlers, Stalins and Tse Dungs the world can handle. After all there is just almost seven billion people in the world.
If cloning becomes a trend, everyone would get into it I guess. , Who would say no, when you have virtual immortality in store? Same body, same thoughts (I hope) and like in Hollywood you might even make friends with your clone, that is if you’re a 200 pound hulk of a man who can jump off 40 floor buildings without a scratch and say ‘Asta-La Vista Baby’ every time. I can even imagine a future company slogan ‘Man’s Best Friend, The Clone’. Populations going to be a problem but I guess the richer countries might manage to take over the weaker more barren lands with a few ‘Wars against terror’. Look at the bright side they can even clone the armies, gives a new meaning to Star Wars. Immortality would finally become a reality and not something that we see on a prime-time sitcom; would people ever want to have any kids? Giving birth would be a nuisance knowing that you are the family tree for ages to come?
When Dolly, the first being to ever be cloned the whole world went into frenzy....
