Clone Wars: The Grownup Version

What or who is a clone? Apart from appearing to be human in most aspects, he or she is also a device for us humans to look at ourselves through third-party eyes, so to speak. Clones are human enough to be logical, objective, intelligent, and even compassionate; and not human enough to appreciate (nor take for granted, for that matter) our whims, foibles, weird behavior patters, and so forth. What we humans perceive as perfectly natural puzzles a clone.

They don’t get humor. Humor, when all is said and done, is our appreciation of the absurd resulting in joyous laughter. Clones don’t see why anything absurd should be a source of joy. (Neither do we, for that matter; but we just take it for granted).

From a clone’s point of view, most humans are highly unpredictable creatures: moody, oftentimes foolish, and staunchly opposed to being reasonable; easily annoyed; obsessed with sex; ludicrously secretive; astoundingly vain. What gives?

A clone can’t be vain: they don’t have the internal mechanism that makes a person crave everybody’s love by acting conceitedly. Vanity is beyond them.

And so forth.

In other words, a lot of things about us humans falls into the category of the ineffable – from a clone’s point of view. Unlike us, clones don’t try to rationalize the ineffable; they just set it aside, and mark it as such. “This is beyond human intellect, which is why we shouldn’t even bother.” For more details please visit these sites:-

A clone’s take on music: a combination of sounds that invokes life-affirming emotions.
A clone’s take on sex: an act resulting from mutual attraction between two individuals; the first step of the reproduction process.
A clone’s take on good food: edibles that invoke positive emotions, which helps one’s digestion.
A clone’s take on humans: somewhat irrational, oftentimes silly, periodically vindictive, grudge-bearing, belligerent beings that resemble us; a group of people to which we clones are inexplicably attracted.

A clone is a sharp dresser: one’s clothes must please the eye, invoking positive emotions, which is conducive to productive behavior.

A clone is free of vice: drinking, smoking, overindulging, being greedy, being jealous are all counterproductive activities.

A clone knows both suffering and joy, but turns neither into a cult.

A clone has no use for economic constructs, money, numerous rules, etc: in the clone world, reason rules supreme. What’s good for the community is good for me; that which is detrimental to the well-being of the community is detrimental to my own lifestyle in the long run.
