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.
