Dang I wrote the previous before reading this.  Ja the thought occurred to

OK but if we did it, I could teach them myself.  Then they would know about
all the quirky stuff that makes me me.

BillK, that has been on my mind a lot.  I don't understand all the mechanics
of large language models, but some parts of it make a lotta sense.  Going
the software route is our best bet methinks.  I will be honest with you: I
don't want a hundred clones, I don't even want one.

I will offer this: I prayed to Evolution to make me a better man.

It gave me my son.  Evolution spoke to me.  It said: Here ya go spike,
here's a better man for yas.

It surprised me that Evolution would speak to me in a voice that sounded so
much like me, even using my own figures of speech.

I have been thinking hard about creating a software "clone" of myself.  I
know of the voice cloning software, now we need the LLMs to get involved.
