To her consternation, instead of uniformed officers, two plain clothed officials arrived and, without even looking over the scene, they proceeded to tell her that there was nothing they could do and if she knew what was good for her she would keep her mouth 34 shut.

You see all the wires going to Harry’s brain? They connect him up with a powerful computer. The computer monitors the output of his motor cortex and provides input to the sensory cortex in such a way that everything appears perfectly normal to Harry. It produces a fictitious mental life that merges perfectly into his past life so that he is unaware that anything has happened to him. He thinks he is shaving right now and getting ready to go to the office and stick it to another neurosurgeon. But actually, he’s just a brain in a vat.
In effect, Neo is a brain in a vat. 54 Let’s say that a matrix (lower-case “m”) is an artificially designed computer simulation of a world. So the Matrix in the movie is one example of a matrix. And let’s say that someone is envatted, or that they are in a matrix, if they have a cognitive system which receives its inputs from and sends its outputs to a matrix. Then the brain at the beginning is envatted, and so is Neo. We can imagine that a matrix simulates the entire physics of a world, keeping track of every last particle throughout space and time.
