Why "must be"?  As an initial experiment, I would find it fascinating.
Depending on various things we have no way to tell now, I might or
might want to partake of it if/when it becomes routine.

I can't imagine we have any hard data on it, so it's all speculation,
but I would not expect to find it miserable.  As either original or
copy - though if it really is a perfect clone, I'm not sure there would
be any difference - I'd find it fascinating.  (I might later find my
feelings changing, of course, but I have no basis to predict which
way(s).  I'd guess they'd be positive, but that's just a guess.)
