Re: human cloning and srimad bhAgavatam

Dear Bhagavatas,

I just wanted to explicate the following:

The indriyas and the manas are infinitesimal (immeasurably small) and as
such cannot be cloned. Thus, according to Vis'istAdvaita metaphysics,
the notion of perfect cloning is nonsensical.  Hence any discussion
regarding cloning must be non-vedic in nature; i.e., it can never be in
accordance with Vedanta.

Ramanuja dasan,
Venkat
