"What is the place of the embodied human agent in the virtual world?"

That's the questions Featherstone and Burrows try to answer in the book "CYBERSPACE/CYBERBODIES/CYBERPUNK: CULTURES OF TECHNOLOGICAL EMBODIMENT." A review of the book is at EBSCOhost. What interests me is that they though that synthetic worlds "[have] the potential for intellectual disembodiment and transcendence of flesh and bone (Gerhard et al, 2004)." What amazes me most is that the book was written in 1995! *shakes his head*
