Cyberspace is a term coined by the novelist William Gibson in his novel Neuromancer to describe existence in virtual reality (or loosely in the internet): "Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts... A graphical representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the non-space of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding..." --William Gibson, Neuromancer
He never leaves his room because all of his friends exist in cyberspace.
