“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:

A loud sound interrupted the scene, and Mark opened his eyes with force. There he stared at the usual ceiling while reaching for his tablet with the intention of ending the loud alarm. “Those dreams are awesome..." - Spidersilk the novel

The silk bed was so soft and comfortable, he thought to himself as he reached his hand under the sheets toward Tia’s back... - Spidersilk the novel
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
