This chapter was originally read at a postgraduate conference called Looking at the Future, held at the University of Sussex in May 1994. The main body of the essay focuses on the difference in the description used to define the physical body compared to the language used when describing human consciousness, and analyses what it means for the genre now that cyberspace isn’t mere science fiction anymore.
