I would say that I would find that situation very interesting and I
would work to improve the situation of both sides of my being without
malice or prejudice. If the link between the two halves of my being were

be as effective as possible in its situation while providing my original
self with the upgrades it wants and use both halves to work towards
paradise. =)
