Dear George:

Your approach to this is very similar to the argument I would make against
the duplication experiment. The duplicator would have to duplicate an
entire universe [not just the light cone] inside itself but the duplicated
part could no longer be what it was - it would now have an external
environment with the need to adjust its structure accordingly - unless
there was a perfect cut between it and its enclosing now disrupted
self. Thus the duplicator must appear to not work even if it did.
