During Spidersilk you may have felt as if you knew some of the places mentioned in the book, however, in Mark's world places like Olympia, Washington or Memphis were a part of Mark's creative world. These cities he would add to his video games in order to give people something to connect with that is both familiar and unfamiliar. Of course, to us the cities in which Mark lived, like Olympus or Memphra, are just an alternative view of what we already know. This is a great technique to help show an alternative reality which leaves readers feeling more a part of their own world and even more curious about the alternative world.

“With a small leap, Mark landed with relief in his silky smooth memory foam bed. The memory foam was soft yet firm all at the same time, making for a satisfying sensation, especially when Mark was mentally prepared for bed.”  - Spidersilk

In Spidersilk Mark actually fights off ghosts who appear in a black mist during one of his “dreams.” The ghost are defeated using different items that Mark finds throughout the book, which create a sonic blast that gives the ghosts a bit more than they bargained for. The ghost, as resilient as they are, begin to reform but there is one major change in them..their noses are white. This is due to the fact that the ghosts were actually blown away by the blast and when they came together they actually breathed in a bit of Mark's atmosphere, which is something they didn't want to do. The white represents a change in them and is used as a direct contrast to the black so it is easy to the change. The ghost scatter knowing that they are now changed.

In Spidersilk there are many relationships that tend to connect with one another more than the typical relationship. One such example is that of Tia and Tina. Although Tia isn't of the same dimension as Tina she finds herself connected with Tina and Mark and eventually finds herself becoming Mark's ally against the ghosts. During this time, Tina is lost and ends up perishing in Mark's dimension, of course she is reborn into a new dimension as Jara where she is given the chance to have a brighter and more youthful outlook. After accepting this shinier version of herself Tina is disconnected from Mark who could have saved her from the black ghosts. With this rewrite of her own self Tina separates from her real life forever, which just goes to show things aren't always greener.

When it comes to the story of Spidersilk you may see a subtle resemblance to that of Robin Hood. Chris Vocal, the CEO of the company Mark is contracted to, actually begins the story as a struggling worker in his own dimension. It isn't until Vocal finds himself in Mark's dimension that he becomes incredibly rich. Of course, Vocal does a fair amount of robbing from Mark and his friends, so there is no telling how many people lost their cash to Vocal and his colleagues. This follows the Robin Hood story quite a bit though, as it has been documented that dear ole Robin wasn't exactly giving up a whole lot of the money he robbed to the poor.

In Spidersilk, Mark finds himself visiting the theater with Mairis. Although it might seem like the two of them simply hanging out there is a lot of hidden elements in the description of the theater as well as the movie choices. If you notice, the theater is actually shaped like a spider web which hints at the spiders that were protection Mark. It is also a design of Ramses who plays a major role in the outcome of the story. That's not all though. Each of the movie titles shows an element in the book! Of course, Mark gravitates towards the movie that hints at being a master of Khi, which seems to show quite a bit about our leading man.

In Spidersilk Mark, like most people today, lives his life sleeping as little as possible. He goes from waking up to downing an espresso and spending his days keeping pretty busy before he tumbles into bed numerous hours later. Many people in today's society can probably relate to this busy schedule, but so many have actually panicked about the lack of sleep they get. For decades now we've actually believed getting 8 hours in crucial to our well being. Some studies now actually say that getting 5 hours of sleep is healthier than the 8 hours we've always believed to be true. Although this might be great news with our busy lifestyles it could correlate with exhaustion mentally or physically in some people. I guess the real question is how many hours would you prefer to sleep and why?

In Spidersilk Mark goes through some amazing battles to come out prosperous at the end of the book. There are many symbols throughout the book that leave us reassured that Mark will be okay though. For example, in one part of the book Mark actually sees a lark on his front lawn. The lark is generally seen as a symbol of luck and brings prosperity to those who see it. Coincidentally, after seeing the lark Mark actually gets a large some of credits added to his Paypal. Seeing a lark is also a sign of self discovery. Perhaps, this lark helped Mark find the power to defeat his foes. What do you think?

Years ago you could classify family as a blood relative, even in professional places. In the novel Spidersilk, the main character Mark touches on the concept of referring to someone as a blood relative and how it almost seems primitive to refer to someone as that because of how far we have come medically. We've known for a long time that DNA is what biologically connects us to relatives and can even link us to some ancestors from way back. It is easily compared to a coding system if you want to think technologically. Blood is made up of so many components that stating someone is a blood relative is quite a vast statement. You can't claim everyone with the same blood type as you a relative can you?

In today's society people tend to use their tablets and smartphones quite a bit. In Spidersilk, we are shown a more technologically savvy society that has tablets designed to take care of just about everything. Each of the characters shown in the book seem to have their tablets as a constant reliable companion that keeps them connected to the rest of society. Even though tablets and smartphones aren't exactly a must have right now, the future is leaning towards the same concept shown in Spidersilk. For instance, the future of tablets might boast a battery free design that doesn't just take care of social media, but business affairs, schooling and everything you could possible needs to make your life efficient. So, how long will it take before everyone in the country is equipped with one of these devices just to survive in modern society?

Spidersilk has many amazing elements that are part of today's paranormal intrigue. One element is the strange mist that often accompanies an appearance that enlightens Mark, or tries to bring him fear. The mist always seems to make an appearance in a dark nature which is commonly seen in today's world by many who believe in ghost. This dark mist is called an ectoplasm in today's paranormal world and is one of the most common ghost sightings that many parapsychologists are asked to investigate. In the book Mark ends up defeating the mist, but in today's world we actually have very few answers as to which mists are real and which are hoaxes.

Crows typically have a negative reputation which most people consider to their only attribute. There are actually many incredible myths about the crow that seem to get overlooked when people bring out the more negative myths. For instance, the crow is actually a symbol of intelligence, adaptability and bravery. As a totem animal, the crow brings out the survivor in you while helping to unveil your destiny. In Spidersilk, Mark encounters many crows prior to the wise Indian Elder appears to him. The Elder gives him incredible advice that helps him live out his destiny and find the courage to take down the men who are causing his friends and himself damage. The crows, at first, put off an eery vibe as they announce Mark's presence. This is because crows are considered to have an insight like no other. It is possible that these amazing creatures were the totem animal of the Elder, as this would allow him to manipulate the physical world, as he magically seems to appear in front of Mark, while also providing him with insight and strength that no other totem animal could provide.

When we start to end our Spidersilk journey we find out that Mark's foe, Chris, has actually been in a coma in his original dimension while the story has played out. Once defeated by Mark, Chris actually flatlines and then regains consciousness in his own dimension. Victims of a coma have had many struggles throughout time because many are seen as brain dead and are usually believed to be gone for good. Recent technology has discovered that many people who are in a coma are actually very much conscious in other areas of the brain. Recently new scans have been developed that have brought coma victims who were believed to be unconscious for over 20 years back to life in a way. These scans have allow many to communicate with loved ones even though their body is unable to do so. With Chris, his coma actually took him to Mark's dimension, which is an amazing idea in itself. There have actually been many people who have woken up with the belief that they traveled elsewhere while they were seemingly unconscious to the world. This form of astral projection or dreaming might bring more to light in the future about what happens with the brain when a coma occurs and if people are actually able to visit other realms while they seem to be checked out of this one.

There are many elements which work to help Mark figure out what needs to be accomplished to defeat his foes. One such element was the introduction of the dream catcher which eventually leads Mark to a spirit guide that gives valuable advice. The dream catcher is an important element in many ways though. These devices were originally created by Native American tribes who wished to protect tribal members from nightmares that flowed through the night time air. When you look at the dream catcher you have to understand that every aspect of the dream catcher is important. One of the most iconic elements in the webbing, which is much like the spider webbing that protects Mark. The webbing helps trap the negative while filtering the positive dreams down to the dreamer via the dangling feather. Mark was very lucky with his dreaming abilities, no matter the nature of the dream, as he utilized all elements of the dream to his greater advantage. However, the dream catcher was his way of unlocking valuable information and strength for his upcoming battle.

One of the finest elements in the novel Spidersilk is the incredible characters that have so much story within each of them. As the story progresses readers are exposed to so many important people that you just have to fall in love with the detail given. One such character is Rae Osira who only plays a brief part in the actual novel. The important aspect of Rae is his kidnapping and what it helps unravel. Rae's surname actually gives readers a fine hint as to his role in the book though. The name Osira is very close to Osiris, an Egyptian god who had great wealth, just as Rae did in the story. The god Osiris was married to Isis, which isn't the case in Spidersilk, but in both elements Isis did end up leading to the discovery of the kidnappers. It just so happens that Sett, the enemy in the novel, also ended up killing Osiris in mythology. This connection, as well as many others in the novel, really help make the story incredibly rich!

Who's Laughing Now

In Spidersilk, Mark has two encounters with a Hyena which he sees using his third eye. In both cases, Mark has just experienced an event that was traumatic or confusing. The hyena, although often seen as a joker or weak figure, has been used as the symbol of treachery, wisdom and fascination. In fact, the hyena is known throughout many cultures to have the powers of divination so they can easily see things that are going to transpire as well as good and evil forces in the world. This may be why the hyena decides to appear to Mark, as the hyena also has the ability to hear the voices and know the evil that is occurring. In Spidersilk, the hyena appears to Mark as being sickly in appearance which may be its way of showing Mark that he is going to need more than his wisdom to get past the one's who are causing him and his friends harm. Interestingly enough, the hyena also played a Biblical role. The hyena was said to carry a blind boy into town so he could have his vision restored. I bet you won't look at hyenas the same way again.

In Spidersilk, you'll find an amazing amount of technology that makes life better in many aspects. From current technological trends, like tablets, to more elaborate projects this book really makes each of the dimensions seem awesome. One of these technological devices is the range seeker, which is designed to help the blind and seeing impaired get through life as if they were actually seeing. Although, in this dimension we are currently barely breaking the surface with our disability technology, there are actually have a lot of exciting things in the works. Between surgeries and devices, pretty soon a disability will be nothing more than a small attribute a person possesses.

Art 101

In Spidersilk, Mark is given a piece of art work to hold onto until a friend could pay him back for a loan. Mark, thoroughly impressed with the work, even displayed the art in his own home. So, what's the big deal? Well, if you remember correctly, the night this artwork is handed over to Mark the voices began to talk to him. Not only that, but the day the piece is returned to the creator the problem with the thieves is settled and Mark and his friends are victorious. It may be a coincidence, but there has been many objects throughout time that have opened up curses, hauntings and other dimensions to the people who possess the item.

the power of gaming

In Spidersilk, Mark has an amazing job designing an MMO game that he hopes gamers will fall in love with. An MMO game is a Massive Multiplayer Online game that allows players to work, in part, with one another to boost their skills and complete an objective. Although MMO games are often team based there is a still a lot for the individual to accomplish. Like Mark's dreams MMOs allow people to communicate and work with people they have never met before. On the other hand, some people are making a lot of noise about the way these types of games will affect our society as a whole. For many, the concept of the games promotes isolation, laziness, obesity and other less than desirable results. However, studies have shown that these types of games actually boost social skills, help promote higher levels of thinking and improve the way people learn. As previously stated, you can think of these games a lot like you would Mark's dreams. Mark had many friendships (or allies) within his dreams. He also gained the ability to push himself further and earn the skills and courage to stop his foes. What are your thoughts on MMOs and the part they play in the future?

Without Technology

We have previously discussed the concept of technological addiction, or the cleansing of the addiction, that was mentioned in the book. We have not yet gone as far as to talk about the people who might have felt that technology was a problem. Just as in the book Spidersilk,there are people who have not embraced our heavily technological world. There are actually a number of technophobes, people who fear technology, in our society. These people don't necessarily disagree with technology, but find the concept of some of our most prized devices as frightening. There is another level of this anti-technology world though. These people are called Luddites and have been around since the 18th century. Although Luddites originally stood for removing technology that altered their economic standing, today's Luddites tend to keep away from technology, especially newer devices, as much as possible. So, do you think the thieves in the books were Technophobes or Luddites or neither? This question might be tough given the fact that the leader ran a highly technological company!

The Curious power of Spidersilk

Had you ever heard of spider silk being protective prior to the novel? I certainly hadn't, so I had to take a deeper look into the powers that spider silk actually has. As a matter of fact, this insane silk is actually much stronger than steel (5 times, if you're curious) while still maintaining the ability to stretch out like rubber. This is great news for many industries that are looking to the future. Many medical and military facilities have already begun to realize the potential of this silk.

In the book, Mark was actually protected by the spider silk the spiders had left in another realm. This substance would certainly keep out any creepers, thanks to its numerous powers. If you think about it, the book, Spidersilk, is really setting the pace for the future as there is so many amazing things that spider silk will help the human race overcome.

Feng Shui

You might not think about it often, but Feng Shui is a major part of our lives. Even in the book Spidersilk, we are shown aspects of Feng Shui without even noticing it. Mark is quite keen on how his possessions and overall home appearance is presented to the world, which is why he spends a good period of time arranging his furnishings and finding furniture that worked with his home. In fact, at one point he gazes out into his backyard and feels that his yard has changed because he senses the change in the environments chi. This is because Feng Shui is an environmental energy that we all feel without realizing it. From the placement of plants in a garden or furniture in a room you can feel at peace or uncomfortable. Mark was in tune with his home's Feng Shui which is part of the reason he was able to know when something wasn't quite right with his furnishings, home and in general, his safety. Tuning in to this special environmental energy allowed him a great advantage when it came to taking on his enemies.

Maybe it's the eighth leg...

In the book Spidersilk, there were a lot of elements that worked together to help Mark successfully take down his enemies and restore his amazing quality of life. One of the biggest contributions to this was the Spiders that were protecting Mark. Most of us have a fear of spiders because they can be deadly, but are also mysterious and hard to predict. However, in many different cultures the Spider was seen as a protector. Many Native American tribes used to pass down stories of the wisdom the Spider protected to the point that the Spider was often referred to as a grandmother. Islam also presents the spider as a protector who helps weave strength into life. Protection from Mark's enemies was not the only thing the Spiders may have helped Mark with. In fact, his prosperity in finances and friendships might have been because of these mysterious eight legged creatures.

In dreams I walk with you....

Some of Mark's friends and acquaintances joined his life via dreams. Although this might not seem realistic, there are actually many theories in which people can meet and interact with one another. This theory is often referred to as mutual dreaming or mutual telepathy. Numerous lucid dreamers have claimed to have experienced these dreams with many people they know and some they do not yet know. In Spidersilk, we are first introduced to Garrick in a dream in which he helps Mark fight off an enemy. Later on, Mark finally meets him in reality and the two act as old friends. Another case is Tia/Mairis. Tia was a major part of Mark's dreams and when Mairis comes into his life he begins to notice they are the same person. Mairis even subtly comments that she likes Mark's dreams in one area of the book.

Dreaming the future, or remembering the past?

The novel Spidersilk brings readers into a world that is rich in dreams and other dimensions. Although in reality we don't have a lot of experience about alternative dimensions we do have a lot of experience with dreams. There is one moment in the book where Mark finds a dirt road that he has clearly seen before in his dreams. The idea of it being real isn't surprising to Mark, but it certainly seems to tickle his curiosity. This concept, generally referred to as deja vu affects a large percentage of the population. Over the centuries there have been a lot of studies on the topic of deja vu and many have actually led to the theory of precognitive dreams. This theory supports a lot of deja vu moments many people have, including the moment Mark had. Of course, precognitive dreams have also proved to come true in many famous situations like the Titanic.

The Queen

Spidersilk is filled with amazing characters that make the story come to life. One such character is the beautiful Isis, whose kidnapping plagues Mark for a good portion of the book. There is a lot going on with the character Isis and one of the major links you might want to look into is the connection with the Egyptian Goddess Isis.

This goddess was seen as the patroness of nature and magic. She was also known to listen to the prayers of the aristocrats and wealthy, which might explain Isis' presence as Mark's party. One of the coolest connections with the character in Spidersilk and the goddess comes to play when Isis tells the story of her kidnapping. Isis believes that a falcon led to her rescue from the detox prison she was forced into. The goddess Isis was said to be the mother of Horus, a god that appears with a falcon or hawk head. Another great link, is Sett the kidnapper can be seen as the Egyptian Set who murdered Isis' husband, Osiris. Isis, of course, led to the capture of Sett in the book and the Egyptian goddess Isis resurrected Osiris so he could fight another day. Cool, no?

A Common Link

Spidersilk brings to life the possibility of there being many multiverses that are traveled by the main character, Mark, as he dreams. A multiverse is several different universes that exist at one time and can help define the present, past and future. There are many different theories as to how the universes combine together and in many each universe effects the way the other works. This is such an exciting idea, but you might find it very interesting that there are actually several theories and few proofs that lean toward there being many multiverses. There have even been curious sightings that might actually prove the existence of multiverses.

A Sign of Hope

The falcon plays a major role in the rescue of Mark's friends, as well as the capture of men who had been abducting people and robbing them of technology. In the book the falcon seems to play a mysterious role to Isis, who looks to it as an entirely desperate move. When the falcon flies away she doesn't think twice about it until help finally comes. There are many different symbols for the falcon in literature and ancient folklore. One such symbol is that of victory and rising above the situation. In other stories it represents guardianship, visionary power and wisdom. We know that the falcon helped saved Isis from the captors, but when you think about it the falcon itself could be a symbol for Mark, who easily jumps dimensions and defeats the villains. Another factor about the falcon is it is the symbol of the rising sun. Before the falcon is introduced Mark actually has contact with an Indian guide who warns that the villain has problems with his “silent sun.” So, how deep do you think the falcon actually runs through this exciting story?

A Little Extra Sense

“Mark had odd sensations as though dangerous things were transpiring.” - Spidersilk

Have you ever had an inkling there was something wrong, only to find out your inkling was true? Mark in Spidersilk was pretty in tune with his body's vibes, but many people right off the sixth senses as something from sci-fi movies. The fact of the matter is that all people have more than the five senses we learn about in school. Being able to sense danger is actually one of our more important senses. There have been numerous scientific studies that link danger to more than just sight and sound. Yes, as a matter of fact, you can smell danger without even realizing it.

The Third Eye

Mark closed his eyes briefly and then opened them again. This time, his third eye opened with them. Suddenly, he could see all sorts of energies.”- Spidersilk

Spidersilk is so complex in more ways than one. In the book we are introduced to a concept referred to as the third eye. Some scientist believe the third eye to be the pineal gland, while others believe it to be a mystical part of the body that can only be unlocked by some. Once unlocked the person is open to their own inner realms and a state of higher consciousness. The Hindu god Shiva actually has a visible third eye, although the eye is generally closed it harbors powers than men could only dream of having. Many ancient cultures even believe that the third eye, one of the seven major chakras, can be accessed better through various yoga moves.

This is a great site for furthering your knowledge on the third eye:

Deamsphere

Throughout Spidersilk the main character, Mark, experiences many different types of dreams. In many of the dreams, like with those that involve Tia, Mark feels as if he actually has control over his surroundings. This could be looked at as Mark dimension surfing, but there is also another option. In our reality, there has been many studies and speculations on a sleep state called lucid dreaming. This state actually implies that we are in control of our dreams and are aware of our surroundings the entire time we are supposed to be “unconscious.” Some people who lucid dream even claim to have left their body and experienced an OBE, or Out of Body Experience.

A Link In Dimensions

Throughout the book there is a lot of references to other cultures; such as this little gem:

“The smooth lines on Ramses’s face did not make him appear old. His skin folded in a way that made his face look chiseled and refined, like a block of stone come to life.”- Spidersilk

When you pictured Ramses what did you see in your mind? Was it one of the great Egyptian kings immortalized in stone? Both Ramesses's in Egyptian culture have been immortalized in stone. They will forever look young and chiseled, much like Ramses was featured in the story!

Technology, to detox or not?


In the book, one of Mark's friends (Isis) (and a good chunk of other people) disappears for a few days. Luckily, she resurfaces physically unharmed, but confesses she was kidnapped and forced to do a techno detox. Today's society is hard fixed on their gadgets and with advancements happening daily the technology of the future might be even more consuming. How do you feel about techno detoxes and their place in our current culture? Apparently, if you're up for giving it a try there is an actual camp that will unhook you for a few days! Here is a link to the camp article as well as a recent experiment performed for a documentary.

Interactive/Internet TV

...Mark reached for the mouse on his home entertainment system. Immediately, the TV began displaying the current video news from various Internet news sources. - Spidersilk

At the beginning of the book Mark, it is revealed that Mark doesn't have the typical TV system. Here he has and entertainment multiplex pre-programmed to access ‘various sources’ and content. This could be more interactive or run on a program. Sites like YouTube offer ‘channels’ that categorize content yet Marks idea takes this a bit further.

Interactive Realms

“…To me, they are real places, real threads in another dimension. Most real things have a design phase.”Mark in Spidersilk.

The MMO game Mark is designing in the beginning of the book include fully interactive side. It includes a internet game piece/component trading and selling as well as real players. The components have a real world texture with aging, value and condition. This game is sort of like an interactive story to be explored by real characters. A lot of MMO have game piece trading and this takes the idea a bit further.
