In the future, body building will be controlled on two fronts, by digital surgeons and genetic surgeons. People will be able send 3-D, virtual images of themselves to Internet communities. Cyber bodybuilders will hire digital surgeons to sculpt online digital avatars-->perfect digitally enhanced bodies made to the specifications of the requester. Online, people will be who they’ve always wanted to be.

In the real world, true bodybuilders will join laboratories, not gyms. Competitors will organize into teams shaped by genetic surgeons. Each athlete will be like a fresh block of stone. Using genetics, the surgeon will carve each one into a different image based upon his expectations for future trends in popular online digital avatars. Competitions will be simulcast over the Internet to different digital communities world wide. The public will pick the winners with a click of the mouse. After each competition. The genetic surgeons will provide the public an opportunity to purchase digital copies of the winning contestants for use as personal avatars over the Internet. The geneticists will return their athletes to the lab to resculpt entirely new bodies for the next season.
