Well, there's the Dune style of cloning - Duncan Idaho was cloned repeatedly for his fighting capabilities, not his personality. They learn that he
must have key events occur in order to become a loyal and feared fighting machine.
Then, the Cloud Atlas style of cloning - Sonmi was a cloned servant - one of many replicant class clones valued for their obedience.
Of course, we can't forget Creator, a movie from 1985 where a man wants to clone his dead wife, for obvious reasons.
I have previously considered having my cat cloned, but after considering the possible spiritual implications I've decided against it. In her final
days (after an apparent stroke), she wasn't the same cat. It was as if she instantly became feral, having lost all of her personality and memory.
The 19 year old had forgotten everyone, and everything. Maybe her soul left her body because she had completed her task in this life, or maybe I just
want to believe that.
Scientists have figured out all of the technical aspects; the most troublesome aspect of cloning is the one we understand the least - the soul.
