Also..he keeps saying it was a "magical place" which I feel plays real significance to what really happened to him. I'm still saying real magic came into play.
Imagine what SHIELD's scientists would have had to do to get a clone body into which they could insert Coulson's memories. They would have had to grow a copy of him from a few cells into an adult, then they'd have needed to wipe that adult's mind of whatever personality or individuality it had and implant the memories of another version of itself in it. It would also be necessary to give that clone all of the scars and markings that Coulson himself had acquired in five decades of living. It would be like that awful movie The Island, but instead of taking body parts from clones to save the originals, SHIELD would have harvested the clone's entire body to resurrect Coulson.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
