“Ah, Olympia? Not Olympus? It is good to show creative flare. As I said, it should be a blast.” Mark smiled at small comment on the name of the place while looking Tink directly in the eye. “Well nearly all natural things in this universe are made of repeating patterns. They repeat yet slightly different. Think about it, its nature.”- Spidersilk the novel
In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark helps his friend fight off intruders from another dimension. These two dimensions are the more obvious in the book, but the author also adds in more. From the videogame world that sounds incredibly close to ours (Olympia, Washington and so on), to the dream realm, spider realm and other dimension Mark keys into, it’s enough to leave you baffled and feeling incredibly small. Such a vast amount of dimensions are only the beginning though. Many scientist believe there are infinite parallel universes connected to ours. Imagine, billions of “you” leading similar but different lives. Check out this video for more:

Although, as human beings, we have made great advances in our knowledge of the outside world in the past few decades, we still know very little about the universe we are in. There’s a lot of theories of how it was made, what it is doing and where we hold up in its massive and mysterious setting. Luckily, there is a lot of evidence to steer us in the direction of a multi-verse. Some scientist believe our universe is merely a bubble floating along with other bubbles. Occasionally, these bubbles briefly impact leaving a bruise on the universe. These impacts could allow different worlds to interact on different dimensions. Just like, in Spidersilk the novel, we could briefly be contacted and affected by an entirely different world, or even, worlds. Fascinating. For more check out this link:

In Spidersilk the novel, multiverses play a huge role in the story. The main character Mark hails from another dimension as do the intruders that attack Mark’s friends. Theories about multiverse have been around for quite some time, but they are changing often. More recently, a theory was published that there is a parallel universe that runs time backwards. Fascinating? Check out the theory here: http://www.iflscience.com/physics/there-parallel-universe-thats-moving-backwards-time

“A small breeze delivered a wisp of dust and grass in the otherwise clean smelling air. It was almost as if something was responding to his discovery.”- Spidersilk the novel

Symbolism is a beautiful part of the literary world and Spidersilk the novel has ample examples of it. One such example is the golden moth that is seen by Mark, the main character, when he witnesses a hyena. The moths are seen to symbolize many different things. Some believe that it’s a departed loved one paying a visit. This could exemplify the grandfather Mark mentions in the story. The moth is also known to symbolize other worldliness, secret knowledge and psychic awareness. The color gold also brings many different meanings, such as enlightenment. All of this plays into the symbolism of the hyena and the message that Mark got from the sighting! For more on moth symbolism check out this site:

In Spidersilk the novel, Spiders play a big role in protecting Mark, the main character, and his friends. Spiders play a major role in the mythology of many different cultures. For example, in some variations of the Old Testament, a spider actually protected David from soldiers sent by King Saul to defeat him. The spider created a fresh web over its cave so the soldiers wouldn’t think to look in the cave. This is slightly reminiscent of how the Spiders worked to help out Mark. Of course, there’s a lot of other legends and myths about spiders, so check out this cool link: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/samhaintraditions/a/Spider-Mythology-And-Folklore.htm

Last week we talked a bit about the multi-verse and some of the theories surrounding it. This is only the beginning of what a multi-verse could hold for the universe. Today, some scientist don’t just believe in the muli-verse as a reality, but they also believe that the multi-verses communicate and evolve based on one another. This is a great supporting example of the world we are looking at in Spidersilk the novel!

In Spidersilk the novel, the multi-verse plays a huge role in the book. Without it, there would be no traveling from dimension to dimension and thus, no real story to tell. In our world, the multi-verse is a theory that many scientist support as real. The entire existence of the universe, according to many scientist, seems to only be plausible due to a multi-verse possibility. This article has some pretty exciting information that may make Spidersilk even more exciting for you!

Traveling via wormholes and hyperspace may seem a lifetime away in the opinion of many scientist. However, everyday new things surface that predict we’re closer to this ability than we think. While browsing around I stumbled on an article about a man who believes to have the answer to hyperspace and wormhole travel. Although the patent might not be taken seriously now, it could lead to further developments that would bring humans closer to this exciting way of traveling. With this ability we’d be able to utilize the hyperspace just as Mark does in the novel Spidersilk. Exciting, no? It’s truly fascinating some of the ideas shared, but have a look for yourself.

Ramses was wearing a shimmering black vinyl jacket with neon-green stripes, a black pinstriped pair of shimmering dress pants, and a shiny green rayon top, having a brass zipper partially unzipped. Ramses removed his designer sunglasses and said, “How is it, my friend!- Spidersilk the novel

Hyperspace is pretty much a mystery to us. We don't have the power to travel through it, nor do we know the whats, whens, whys or hows about it. However, it's still one of the most fascinating things to study. In Spidersilk the novel, Mark actually does know how to utilize hyperspace to his advantage. This shows us how much can be accomplished with the knowledge of our outer world. In fact, it is because of hyperspace that other dimensions could possibly exist. There's a lot of amazing things to still learn about hysperspace in regards to human technology, but if you're interested you can still catch up on many theories. This article is a great start to learn more about hyperspace and the theories surrounding it.

Mark quickly selected some of the pieces, which were made of material such as velvet, brass, glass, stone, and even concrete. The prices were very reasonable for such pieces, causing Mark to carefully examine them. However, he found them to be entirely of exceptional quality, and seemingly built to last, possibly longer than a human’s life span.- Spidersilk the novel

A couple of weeks ago we talked about ghosts possibly being from another dimension. This week I'd like to talk about objects that we perceive as haunted. There are many out there that hold great significance and are famous for the stories and possible hauntings they create. Perhaps, if ghosts are from another dimension then maybe these objects are portals or another form of entry point into our world. In Spidersilk the novel, Mark takes possession of a work of art from a friend who borrows money from him. As soon as he takes on the artwork he begins to hear the “ghosts” that rob and harass his friends. How cool would it be if this piece of work, like the haunted items we have in today's world, opened up the doors to allow the “ghosts” to invade. After all, when Mark returns the item he also defeats the intruders. For more on haunted items in our dimension check out this list:

Parallel universes are still a mystery to us, but there's a lot of theories behind those mysteries. In Spidersilk the novel we are exposed to a few different dimensions. This adds an exciting element to the novel that really draws the reader in. One of the most amazing things about this is we see a connection between the dimensions. For instance, in one scene Tia is catching the same Channel 88 news that Mark watches. There's also the mystery of Starbucks, espresso and other pop culture elements being such a hit in Mark's current dimension. This is fascinating because this aspect of culture comes from our own dimension, or do they? Many scientists believe that during the Big Bang two universes collided together that were made up of cycles of evolution. This would explain how two totally different dimensions would maintain some of the same ideas (such as the company Starbucks), food and ways of living. Here's a pretty cool article on some of these theories: http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2010/11/our-universe-was-created-by-a-cyclical-trillion-year-collision-of-two-universes-.html

How’s my friend from across space-time? Did you search the news for activity with blind people? I am thinking of repeating patterns that link to our..uh..interesting intruders.”- Mark in Spidersilk the novel

From generation to generation many have passed down legends of ghosts. Many people, at some point in their lives, have claimed to see their very own ghosts. Typically, we consider ghosts to be those who have already past and may not be at rest. However, there is another theory. Ghosts might actually be part of an entirely different dimension that is clashing, or just interacting, with our own. This theory can be seen in hit Sci-Fi shows like Dr Who to serious documentaries. In Spidersilk the novel many ghosts from another dimension also surface and Mark is forced to fight them off in order to protect himself and his friends. This is a great connection when it comes to dimensions! What are your thoughts on the ghosts in the book and in general?

He touched up his hair in the mirror, and was generally very detailed. Mark lifted a Mark Izh-79 weapon from under his arm; checked and cleaned it slightly. The teargas bullets were still intact. Suddenly, Mark heard something odd coming from a dark corner of the large bathroom near the walk-in shower area. “Why so silent?” it said”- Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

In Spidersilk the novel there are many locations mentioned, which makes it such an intricate story. Some suit our current world, such as Olympia, while others go back to the days of mythology, like Olympus. There are still others that come from locations many have never heard of. One location, Vular, is actually known to be a location from a video game called Mass Effect. This really flows into the idea of Mark creating games via different dimensions! I wonder if the locations are related, or just coincidence?

"Mark quickly generated a sphere of energy then squeezed it that generated waves of thick energy, assaulting the small “ghosts.” The dark “ghosts” suddenly began emitting an extremely high-pitched noise that Mark could barely hear. Off in the distance, glass began cracking and breaking from the noise, presumably the nearby houses."- Spidersilk the novel

Throughout Spidersilk the novel, the main character uses Qi to help maintain balance in a world that seems to be a bit off balance. He glows at the fact his party has great qi, works to create Feng Shui in his own home, and balances himself with an energy that helps defeat intrudes. Even his last name, Khiop, seems to portray Qi. So, what exactly is Qi? It's the Chinese word for life energy and it can be seen in many forms around the world. Essentially, it is the vibes that resonate from everything on this planet, which is why it is important to keep good vibes in your life.

“Well, it is a real place, like another thread to the multiverse, another dimension. They step into the video game and explore. It is not meant to be an exact replica of the cities we know as Olympus or Memphra, although I possibly should have placed some palm trees in Memphis.”- Mark in Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

In Spidersilk the novel it is quite apparent that the intruders come from an entirely different dimension. Mark, the main character, even spends his waking and dreaming hours fighting off the intruders. However, at times, it seems as if Mark may be from a different dimension as well. For example, it is often mentioned that he is a newcomer to the town, but it never actually says where he's from. He definitely has abilities that others do not and his knowledge of other worlds (like our own!) is impressive. What are your thoughts on the mysterious and powerful main character?  

Friday, September 12, 2014

Well, it does seem sort of interesting. If that is my only option, sounds like I’ll probably skill and destroy it.” Ben finally laughed. “Okay, I’ll set up an interview and see what they try for."- Mark in Spidersilk the novel

MMOs are a major part of the gamer world today. In fact, most new releases have a partial MMO aspect to them. This unites gamers as a community while allowing the power of the individual to shine. In Spidersilk the novel, Mark is developing his own MMO for work. However, when you begin to look at the details it almost seems as if Mark is living in an MMO. If you take a look at this quote from the book:

“The game was an MMO (massively multiplayer online game) where each player would need to decipher symbols, communicate through symbols, best other players in combat, discover treasures, and even create treasures... While players could communicate with one another in the usual way, there were parts in the game where players would have a distinct advantage while utilizing silent symbolic communication.”

...it is clear that Mark utilizes many of these in the novel. From dream catchers to special ways of communication with friends, it is almost as if Mark has created his consciousness around an MMO lifestyle.

If you're not already amazed with the amount of characters in Spidersilk the novel, then looking into the meaning of their names will really excite you. We've checked into many characters before, but Jeff Horus is one of my favorite complex heroes in the story. Jeff is amazing at helping Mark find out information about the intruders, but could this possibly be because he is named after one of the most famous Egyptian gods, Horus? Horus was an avian deity that was often depicted with a Falcon head. This really draws in an important detail from the story. If you think back to Ramses and his hostage, Draul, you may recall that Draul was given something to help him see the matter that is hidden from many. In this matter there were falcons and spiders, which were seen throughout the book as protectors and informers to Mark. Thus, Jeff Horus really lived up to his name. For more on Horus, give this link a go:

Throughout Spidersilk the novel there are a few birds used to symbolize deeper meanings. One of these birds is the crow. Although in popular culture the crow tends to be used to signify darker motives. For instance, in many films you'll see them in cemeteries and even old folk legends associate the crows with death. There is an alternative though. In Native American symbolism the crow is told to reveal itself when a revelation must be made. The crow is a sign for the person seeing it to open up the sixth sense and see what is not actually visible to the naked eye. When the crows appear in Spidersilk it is like they're asking Mark to see what is not yet visible, when he does everything else becomes more apparent.

“Mark opened his hand, and in his palm, a large luminous question mark appeared. It turned with beady little yellow eyes, looking his way and slowly circling him. Suddenly, it dashed his way.”- Mark in Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

In Spidersilk the novel most of the intruders were blind and came from a world called Braila. Although there is an actual Braila in our world (it's in Romania), the name of the city is quite significant because Brail is actually what blind people use to read. This is just one of the hidden gems in Spidersilk. There's a lot of clues and associations that lead the readers to believe the intruders were blind and had many forms of aid that helped them give Mark and his friends a run for their money.

I KNOW! It’s tha-that, I want to enable him to attain a good future. Better than we have if possible.”- Ekaa in Spidersilk the novel.

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

When it comes to Spidersilk the novel there's a lot of people whose names might seem familiar. There's a good reason for this. Each character out of the novel has such a deeper meaning, so when you branch out to research names you may find quite a few treats. One such name investigation leads to the origins of Ekaa. If you recall she is the wife of Chris and longs for success for her son. The name Ecka, in Hindi, links back to the Goddess Durga who is known as the Supreme Mother. This would explain her insitance on her son's future. The name also links to a poem that embraces parenthood called Tvam Ekaa Bhawani. For more on the poem check out this link:

“Today was a good day. Financial numbers are up, quality numbers are up and cost are down. The new ‘Explorer IV’ power tool is selling nicely, now to ensure that the ‘Explorer V’ can top it- Chris in Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

In Spidersilk the novel, the alternative world that Dacian and Chris reside in is filled with devices to make seeing (or interpreting) easier for the blind. There is everything from brail keyboards to range scanners, which help make the blind aware of their surrounding. In our own society these inventions are slowly becoming a bigger part of our world. With technology on the rise it is important to plan for everyone to be able to function in a world that requires most of the senses. Is there anything in the novel Spidersilk that you'd like to see utilized in today's world?

Reaching for the door, Mark thought to himself, at least it wasn’t raining today. The overcast sky loomed, yet the cumuli were not quite as dark as yesterday, providing a glimmer of blue sky.”-Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Traveling within a wormhole is a pretty hot topic when it comes to scientist that study potential means to space travel. In the novel, Spidersilk, the main character does a lot of traveling through hyperspace, most likely via wormholes. One character in particular, Tina, actually makes if through the wormhole. She finds herself in the dark as she is reprogrammed to live in an entirely different dimension.

“It is possible that they are all a front for something else. The history seems very limited like they just showed up and made few things up or something”- Garrick in Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Imaginary friends are pretty prominent in most cultures around the world. They're usually more prominent in regards to children, but there have been some adults who reported having imaginary friends. In Spidersilk the novel, Mark actually refers to Garrick as his imaginary friend. It seems that the two managed to befriend one another even though they were from different dimensions. This is actually a common theory around the imaginary friend concept. This definitely adds a very cool element to Spidersilk!

“Meanwhile, Thoth was investigating newly arrived residents. “It is not all that surprising that 80 percent of newly arriving residents are blind.” Thoth mumbles to himself.- Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Although Thoth, in Spidersilk the novel, may have been a minor character he definitely played a huge part in Mark's success. There's a lot of exciting details about Thoth that become even more apparent when you look into Egyptian mythology. The Egyptian god Thoth was often seen as an arbitrator which might explain his job as a police office. Thoth also oversaw three major Good vs Evil battles. One of these battles was between Set and Osiris. This might ring a bell since Thoth was investigating the disappearance of Rae Osira (close to Osiris), which led to the capture of Sett who was one of the intruders stealing technology.

See the energies in this domain, this world. They don’t take kindly to your behavior. We can chase you through hyperspace whenever needed.”- Ramses in Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark has a number of powers that help him defeat the ghost intruders. One of his best forms of defense was his ability to travel through hyperspace. This method is used a lot in many pop culture stories, but what is it exactly? Hyperspace tends to be described in many ways and usually goes hand in hand with traveling faster than the speed of light. It is connected to our universe, but is still on an alternative plane. Usually, it takes a good amount of energy or special device to enter the area. I guess it's a good thing Mark loves his espresso! Wormholes are also a major part of hyperspace, but that's a totally different post....

Friday, July 4, 2014

“ Numerous bugs in the navigation and range sonars required backup scanners or someone who could understand what was happening. He laughed at that, how primitive life must have been”- Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark has a lot of friends who work to help him solve the problem of the ghosts. There is one friend, however, that doesn't seem to follow the loyalty that Mark's other friends do. Tink is a colleague of Mark's who seems indifferent to the events that are happening to Mark and his inner circle. While the rest try to find out what's going on, Tink considers Mark's thoughts to be conspiracy theories and he often mocks Mark's intentions of creating new worlds in his video games. With Tink so down on Mark it almost seemed as if he were on the side of the ghosts. With a little further investigation Tink even tells Mark he will attend his party like an apparition, which is a bit coincidental since this is when the ghost first appeared!

Sometimes, the best way to truly appreciate a book is to look at the finer details. Spidersilk is rich in this aspect. There are many scenes that don't just drop clues, but guide the reader to a better understanding of the world and actions of the characters. In Spidersilk the novel, one of the best background details is the theater. This amazing structure features a web-like design that was designed by Ramses. The cool thing about this is each area of the web probably leads to a different a film. This gets even deeper into the plot when you look at the film names (Mandelbrot Jumper, States of Matter, The Pattern Repeaters, White Plague, Masters of Khi, Acuteness of Vision, Kumonosu), which all lead to a different character or theme in the novel. It's funny how a few sentences can really help direct reader's in the right direction

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark becomes a hero as he takes on the intruders. It is Mark's special abilities that really make him seem like a superhero though. For instance, Mark often senses things that are awry and he has a strong connection with the world around him as well as other dimensions we can't normally see. There are actually people who have these special abilities in reality. This ability is called Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) who have Extra Sensory Perception (ESP), which can range from a heightened sense of smell to actual psychic abilities.

Ramses, from Spidersilk the novel, is a great character that doesn't just take care of business but keeps a little mystery to his inner workings. Ramses is a wealthy friend of Mark who is willing to do whatever it takes to get what is his back. He even uses scarabs to get what he needs from a hostage. The Ramses in Spidersilk has a great connection to King Ramses of Ancient Egypt. This incredible king lived during a brutal time, but knew how to get what he needed from his enemies. King Ramses even created one of the first peace treaties, which shows off his quick thinking and willingness to do what it takes to get what he needs.

The novel Spidersilk has numerous characters that help lead the story along. One of those characters is Kratos, the chief defective that John and other officers report in to. Although Kratos is only mentioned slightly in the novel his role is incredibly important as he is in charge of the happenings at the station. This is a great connection to Kratos from Greek mythology who was known for his strength and power. Along with his brothers, this Kratos was an enforcer, which is very similar to the role of a police chief. In modern society there is even a company names Kratos, which is designed to keep home's secure.

Spidersilk the novel features many hidden details in the décor of many of the areas Mark and his friends interact with. One fine example is the décor in the Cyberpad. Although the cafe features futuristic designs, like those that would seem to belong in Mark's world, there is also undertones of the past or perhaps even a less technological world like that of the intruders. In the Cyberpad there is also a bronze falcon hanging from the ceiling. The falcon is a symbol that is often shown in Spidersilk and usually appears when the group is close to a game changing clue, which makes sense considering much of the talk about the intruders takes place at the Cyberpad. Of course, there are many other décor symbols throughout the book, such as the web like design of the theater and even Mark's backyard.

Tablets have become a major part of the average household. From keeping in touch with loved ones from around the world to taking some time to relax with a game or book, the tablet has become such an extension that it often hard to think of it advancing even more. Right, now there is already talk about the tablet becoming the next laptop or PC, as these bulky means of computing have become too outdated for our fast paced world. In Spidersilk the novel, Mark may be from a different dimension, but he still utilizes a tablet like device for his computing needs. From checking his bank account to texting and calling friends, his tablet is featured many times throughout the high tech novel. For more information on one amazing development with the tablet check out this link:

In Spidersilk the novel, the spiders play a large role in the progress of the book. Even though they are unseen and unnoticed (much like in real life), the are busy working on webs that protect the main character Mark and his friends. The novel also mentions a Dream Catcher which is utilized as an entry point during one of Mark's dreams. These fantastic devices are known to detour nightmares, and like the beautiful craft of the spider, the dream catcher is created by a webbing technique. There is an old Native American legend that tells of a spider providing the people with instructions on how to create the dream catcher. What is even cooler is the web even goes as far as linking the universe. Many scientist have referred to the universe as being connected by a Cosmic Web. It is truly amazing how these items coincide, especially as each concept plays a part in this incredible novel.

Spidersilk the novel has a great story that involves a Robin Hood mind set. Some of the foes in the story are keen on robbing from the main character, Mark, and his friends in order to redistribute the wealth in their own dimension. Like most Robin Hood stories there is a lack of integrity in the distribution. In fact, typically the Robin Hood character tends to benefit more from what is stolen than the poor that are meant to receive the funds. This is certainly the case in one of today's modern Robin Hood stories. In fact, less than a year ago a man was sentenced to a very short prison sentence for robbing over $100,000 from an American bank. Although he claimed the money was meant for charity, only a small amount of it could be found and much of this was being prepped to be sent to family members rather than the needy.

Repeating patterns

The book Spidersilk utilizes repeating patterns as an underlying explanation for the story scenario with multiple worlds. The character Mark finds a way on multiple occasions to connect to various different 'places' which seem similar yet different. Nature it seems repeats endlessly and therefore patterns in one world may exist in another. Some with large differences and developments to others with smaller differentials. This actually seems quite common in nature and there are many studies on this topic. Wouldn't it be fun to find a way of connecting to another place and discover that it is actually a similar pattern to the one you live in?
