Creative Fiction: The Morph Machine

Becky "Sha" Shamen was inspired to write something that could be described as part creative science-fiction, and partially a prediction of what technology might offer in the future. In real life, we are learning more about DNA and how to manipulate it. Surgery is also getting less invasive (sometimes), and with doctors able to alter someone's appearance to greater degrees. With this in mind, what if in a time not so far away people don't have to go to virtual reality to have a different body, but with the help of available technology can become real-life versions of nonhuman Second Life avatars?
