Are you intentionally confusing things?

One thing is duplication. In the digital world, you achieve 100%
duplication WITHTOUT any loss of the original. Like ideas, because it's
just as immaterial.

To duplicate you may have to spend some energy, but you have not done so
at the cost of the original.

The original is 100% intact.

If you don't have any arguments for this, please stop trying to convince
us that the cloudless sky is pitch black by day.
