Questions/Comments on Dick/Marcuse (2)

The more I read Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the more I began to question the symbolism behind the "Buddy Friendly" character. In the not so distant future, will our television and radio personalities be replaced with fictitious, ever energetic characters? As one considers the present picture manipulation technology currently utilized in professional photo shoots, is it too much a stress to consider the possibility that  celebrities won't merely be photo-shopped, but created?
