Humans have colonized most of the planets and moons in our local volume of space, and it's the end of an interplanetary age of exploration.

I knew I wouldn’t be able to function in a purely Ballardian universe. He wins this film’s version of the Golden Ticket: A week-long trip to the remote mountain hideaway of Nathan (Oscar Isaac), Blue Book’s reclusive founder and CEO. One of the hallmarks of cyberpunk is that humans can be genetically altered into super soldiers, and augmentations of the body are common even among normal citizens.

Anything that can be done to a rat can be done to a human being. They can hack into the Matrix and re-enter the simulated reality, where their understanding of its true nature allows them to manipulate its physical laws, granting them superhuman abilities. Sometimes it is also applied to fiction considered more "literary" in nature that includes elements of SF or fantasy.
