Orphan Black Shows Us The Hidden Clones In All Of Us, Says PBS Idea Channel

I'm a clone! He's a clone! She's a clone! We're all clones!

A simulacrum is a copy without reference to its original that’s able to stand on its own merit. It’s a useful concept in media, and nowhere else is it more useful than in discussing Orphan Black, where literal clones have their own interior lives. You know who else might be a simulacrum? You. Hear us out, it’s gonna get weird.
