“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

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
