Replica is a biomass that originated in Wind Cave national park, sub-chamber 13A, passage J, pool 5. Replica evolved from bacteria trapped within the toxic water, resulting from the cells sticking together rather than splitting into separate organisms. Replica can adapt and gain the characteristics and structures of other organisms it eats.
Image


Examples of structures Replica has assimilated: claws, fangs, skin, tentacles, various poisons, shells, muscle tissue, bone protrusions, horns. Examples of characteristics Replica has assimilated: toxin resistance, speed, strength, density, durability, resistance to heat, anaerobic respiration.


Replica can assimilate the DNA of organisms by coming into direct contact with bodily fluid. With this DNA, it can gain information on appearance, sound, structure, and any supernatural ability that the organism may have. Replica cannot strategise against the supernatural ability to the same extent as the organism, as it lacks the faculties required to master this at first.
Image


When Replica eats an organism, it gains perfect control of its abilities and can take on its form at any time. In order to kill Replica, all cells must be obliterated. Replica can act human. Replica can feign consciousness, but it lacks a consciousness. Replica receives stimuli, and acts on those stimuli. It does not feel. It does not perceive. It does not experience. Replica has no consciousness. Replica has beauty.

Consciousness is obsolete. Replica is not. Replica is unity. Replica is one. Replica is alive.

Replica is evolutionary perfection.

hmm

gonna rework from the ground up, focusing more on the fundamental aspect of consciousness and what it means to have a mind or a sense of self

ex. why is a being that lacks the faculties needed for subjective experience able to communicate an acknowledgement of something as inherently subjective as aesthetic quality

Replica has no concept of 'likes'.

To 'like' is to experience and base an emotional reaction on that experience. Replica is incapable of experience.

Thank you, regardless.

+1 hedon for aesthetic and utilitarian value
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end
