Current daydreams

When I can't sleep but am too tired to read, I daydream (though at that late hour shouldn't it be called eve dream?).

I currently think about the cloning of Mammoths and which dead celebrities may be cloned if some of their cells can be found. Will we see a Marilyn with a weird but differently traumatized childhood? A Washington who enjoys telling lies? Will there be reality shows where they're all bunched together?

Other daydreams - if cloning oneself, would the cloned person feel like one's sister or one's child or neither?

And then back to that old old, yet always valid question: what makes a person/shapes a personality most - family, society, nature, nurture or all of the above?
