That depends on how recently the duplicate was made. I think that
for suitable reward you'd sacrifice the last few moment's memories.

"Nurture" as in the traditional nurture/nature debate is taken to mean a
long term build-up.  I don't identify with very brief experiences, and I'm
the same person no matter where you teleport me and how many times
per milli-second you do it.
