Truth is, it's probably healthy for the "copy" to witness the death of 
the original.  The period of your coexistence must be *agonizing*. 
Knowing that you are a perfect clone of another living being, the sense 
of being a "copy," has to be miserable.

Witnessing one's own death is probably the happiest day in the life of 
machine intelligence.
