    Cloned Books

    You would have started a butterfly effect by simply being there, which means anything you saw wouldn't be the same. Isn't that the whole poibt of the butterfly effect? The slightest change (just you stepping into that world) could have any number of implications. Past or future. Even if you didn't do anything in the future apart from buying one comic book you would change the future and the same if you went to the future. This topic is just for a discussion. The philosophical factor. Nothing else.

    Cloned Books

    The specific reason I said clone was to avoid the whole time machine conundrum and also to step away from the counterfeits. This is just purely a philosophical discussion. There is no conspiracy theory to copy your books. Would it be better if I painted a scenario? The year is 2020. Humans have the ability to perfectly replicate any physical object, down to the last atom. Any DNA on the item is retained as is. Items are copied like for like. Looking at them under a microscope, scientists can't discern the original from the copy. It is so cheap that each copy costs only 10.00 USD. The only problem is it only seems to work with comic books and even the cases for those slabbed comics that them nerds talk so much about. These are not counterfeits and unfortunately it's only 2020, so no time machine yet (except for going into 2020 for the purpose of this philosophical discussion)

    Cloned Books

    Absolutely it would crash, but the question is would you or anyone else still be interested in their comics if they were only worth 10 USD?

    Cloned Books

    But it's not authentic. That's shy reprints would be excluded from this. You can still have collectibles that aren't valuable. Is it merely because of the monetary value you'd lose?

    CGC will open an office in London in April

    Would love to know the costs though.

    Cloned Books

    The point is, if you can clone, so can others. The original question was specifically directed as yourself as a owner. I would. My grails involve a Hulk 181 9.0 and X-men 6.0 signed by Stan Lee. I'd have no issues with the book being copied. For me the value us is in what the books represent and not their monetary value. It's asking the question of would you be happy to have your books cloned to own whichever book you wanted? Read more into the implications of it. The cloning is open to everyone's books.

    Cloned Books

    So you have all of the books you've ever wanted? You've finished collecting?

    Cloned Books

    You never wanted to own all of those great key issues? I do. I have goals for collecting which I know I'll likely never achieve due to the insane cost and inflation some books have gone through.

    Cloned Books

    Depends on your perception. If this helps, if your books were signed or touched by anyone. Any vestigial DNA would still be on your book. The signature would be there.
