Actually, I'm trying to remember what I meant. In the paragraph which
followed, I wrote: "In any case, this does mean that if clones are actually
possible, a clone will have an entirely new neshamah, and would be fully
human in every possible respect."
So if I recall correctly, what I intended to say was the following: if a
clone were to have have intelligence and speech, then indeed this would
demonstrate that the clone has an entirely new neshamah [soul]. If HaShem
doesn't give a new neshamah to an implanted clone, then the clone will not
have intelligence and speech.
So indeed I think Kira Sirote (the mother of "identical" twins) has it
right - the identical genetics doesn't mean an identical soul, and thus we
all agree that a clone which demonstrates human intelligence would be a
normal human with a unique identity and neshamah.
