I've read books that suggest having DNA is not enough to recreate the 
organism, I don't recall the argument exactly, but something like you 
need an egg to put it in.

Obviously [1] the information in your head, and anything else that comes 
under nurture or environment would not be recreated.

The old joke is invest a penny for 200 years at 10% and by the miracle 
of compound interest you'll have a million pounds which by then will be 
worth nothing.

[1] physical law - causality.
