“Not only the flesh, but the soul will be perfectly identical…”
This animation really emphasizes the possible consequences of playing God, and it starts with William Cooper, a scientist who was working on a cloning machine with his twin brother. After his brother was murdered by Tyler Smith, William wants to “revive” his beloved twin brother by cloning himself in a machine since they are one and the same in terms of personality and appearance. Notably, he does not appear to have any intention to seek direct vengeance against Tyler; instead he just wants his brother to be alive again, but also as a scientist see if cloning humans would work.
When William finally clones himself however, what he sees is a “monster” that holds similarities to himself (or his brother). An interesting string of events occur from there: he goes and kills his “twin” without any hesitation, as the blue skin and swirly eyes indicate that this clone is not sane. As he buries this clone however, it seems that he has started to reflect on his actions and true nature as he started seeing himself as the same image as the clone and by extension, the murderer Tyler. In technicality, clone or not, he kills a part of himself in the process regardless.
As for the ending (after the end of the sequence before it goes back to him sitting on the chair)…I honestly don’t know how to interpret this from here. Is William in actuality Tyler Smith under a different alias? Did the clone actually win and take up that name? What do you guys think?
