The Matrix is another term (slang) for the globally interconnecting computer network also known as cyberspace. As more and more networks are bridged together, we are ending up with one network of networks. Soon, as computers are equipped with radio modems, users will be able to access the worldnet from just about anywhere.
Look cyberspace and Virtual Reality.
