While it is a genetic clone, it is still a different tree. Same material is irrelevant.
If you don't like my answers that is your problem not mine. If you can't differentiate between age and death that is not my problem either.
This would then just allow the body to replace cells as "normal" and not in that abnormal and uncontrolled way, allowing the person to, shall we say, be alive longer, rather than "age" as you seem to have a problem with that word, but not necessarily die of old age.... Or cancer. You get it now ?
Btw, I don't dislike your answers, I just think they're rubbish... the tree would not be a clone, for example, as it would not be identical to the original. Someone who receives a transplant heart is not said to be a clone, but the donors family do say that they feel the donor is living on. So the question still stands, is the original tree still living on ?
..again, a physical question, not a psychological one.
