In Spidersilk the novel, dimensions play a big role in the multiverse of the novel. From the main character accessing his third eye to environmental energies, it’s clear to see the author reveals a world rich in dimensions. Of course, in our own world, scientists are always arguing about dimensions. For many, we live in a 4D world, while others believe in so much more. Recently, a theory arose that there could be many dimensions that are too small for us to even notice.

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character, Mark, fights off intruders that are blind. In their own world, the intruders had many different forms of technology to help them function as if their sight weren’t a problem. In our own world, we have many things to help the blind, but none quite as intricate. However, recently a tech executive came up with a new concept to help the blind watch TV. This is great news for the future of technology for the disabled.

In Spidersilk the novel, the storyline is based around the realization that the multiverse is the real deal. Mark, the main character, finds off attackers from an entirely different universe, which really adds a compelling edge to the story. In our own world, the concept of a multiverse is merely a theory. However, this week a scientist came forward with evidence he believes may prove the multiverse is real. Of course, many scientist won’t go so far as to so it is 100% true, but the latest evidence does strike a pretty amazing argument.

Spider silk can is one of the toughest substances around, as you can see in Spidersilk the novel. The spiders in the novel use their silk to help protect the main character, Mark. In our own world, scientists are only beginning to scratch the surface of spider silk, but recently they published a study that shows spider silk is stronger when exposed to humidity, which probably explains why your favorite 8-legged friends are more commonly found outside in the summer.

Spidersilk, the novel, takes place in a multi-verse, which offers readers a lot to add to the imagination of the tale. Although readers enjoy the story mainly through the main character’s, Mark, point-of-view there’s still many elements that can be looked at in the multi-verse. Much like some of today’s more popular superhero tales, Spidersilk can be worked in a number of different ways, thanks to the author’s elegant design of the multi-verse. Of course, Spidersilk also pays more attention to continuity than some of the well-known multiverse tales.

In Spidersilk the novel, the concept of the multi-verse plays a huge role in the story. Like, Spidersilk, scientist have been toying around with the concept of a multi-verse for quite some time.

In Spidersilk the novel, the multi-verse plays a huge role in the story line. With intruders coming in from another dimension and the main character’s, Mark, own video game design, the idea of a multi-verse brings the story to a whole new level of awesome. Multi-verses are used often in sci-fi, to help gain more from one story line. For instance, more recently, DC Comics has been churning out alternate universes like crazy. With Spider Gwen’s recent release, it’s exciting to see the new worlds unfolding. For more on the introduction of multi-verses into a storyline check out this link:

“The sliding doors opened, and Mark looked up; it was Isis. She waltzed in; her shimmering black hair bounced yet seemed to stick together in near unison.

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark encounters spiders that are as large as Playstations. Although these spiders were in another dimension, there are actually a few spiders in our world that get this large. For instance, the Goliath Bird-Eating tarantula has a body that can reach up to a foot long! It’s no surprise, its fangs can be up to a full inch. The Huntsman spider is another prime example of a large and charge arachnid that could have easily protected Mark from the intruders.

In Spidersilk the novel, some intruders begin to kidnap people and take away their technology so they can detox from it. This notion isn’t just from another dimension though. In fact, people in the here and now often fight against technology. These people, referred to as Luddites (among other anti-tech groups), may begin to become more anti-tech as the times change. Imagine, a world where religion and natural resources aren’t the cause of terrorism, but rather the latest piece of developing tech. Scary?
Here’s a great article on what they future could bring:

If you’re wowed by the power of spider silk, then you’ll be surprised that a group of scientists put their heads together to make this (already) durable material even stronger. Just imagine Spiderman’s web-slinging abilities, but on steroids. The scientists initially tested spiders by spraying one test group with a mixture of and graphene and the other with a mixture of water and carbon nanotubes. The spiders spritzed with the carbon nanotubes actually managed to weave the carbon into their silk, making it 3.5 times stronger than ever before.

This week, I ran across an article talking about a theory insisting that life, as we know it, is all a big hoax. For the scientists involved in this theory, there’s a chance that we’re actually living in a simulation. In Spidersilk the novel, the author introduces us to different dimensions. Like this theory, could one dimension be purely created by another dimension? Just one of those things that keeps you up wondering at night, right?

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character, Mark, hosts a party called the Faces of Reality Party. Ironically (or maybe not), this is also the night in which Mark is contacted by intruders from another dimension. I’m sure many people with less knowledge than Mark may have shrugged off the voices as mere illusion. This poses the question of what reality truly means? Both Mark and the voice were a reality, but many have proposed that as humans we live mostly experiencing illusions.

In Spidersilk the novel, most of the characters have a connection to something from our own world, or from legends that many grew up hearing. Kara, for instance, plays a rather small part in the book. However, while browsing around I was able to dig up some information about a Norse legend. According to myth, there was Valkyrie named Kara who was known as the stormy one. This could explain Kara’s sassy attitude. Another interesting tid bit about this Valkyrie, is she was often seen in the form of the crow. Although in the novel, Kara has no connection with the Valkyrie legends, the shared name is rather interesting.

In Spidersilk the novel, Mark, the main character, meets up with his friend Rae Osira. Eventually, Rae is kidnapped by the intruders. The name Osira is connected to another incredible story though. In the world of DC comics, Osira was actually from another planet, much like the intruders Mark battles. She also attempted to control the world in order to bring peace. This can also relate to the intruders need to get rid of technology for the greater good. Although the character Rae may not actually be inspired by Osira, it is still an interesting out of the box connection.

In Chapter 1 of Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark hosts a housewarming party. He invites his friend Tink who oddly states that he will “be there like an apparition.” Although this may simply be the way Tink uses his words, it also shows a bit of foreshadowing. At the party, Mark begins to hear voices from a ghost who soon begins to cause him a lot of problems. Did Tink know something Mark didn’t? Even later in the story this seemingly mysterious character seems to shrug off Mark’s ideas about their employers. Perhaps, Tink was in on it the entire time?

In Chapter 1 of Spidersilk, the novel, Mark explains to Tink about the repeating patterns in the video game world. Of course, he also implies there are repeating patterns within the world too. For instance, Mark uses services that we do, such as Paypal, Starbucks, movie theaters, espresso, car brands and so on, even though he is from another dimension! Not to mention, his daily life is very similar to a pattern too. He has his espresso and falls asleep and awakens while looking at his ceiling each day. From music to Mother Nature, we can find repeating patterns everywhere. Which patterns did you find in the book?

In Spidersilk the novel, the intruders are blind. However, they do have heightened senses in other degrees. For instance, in the novel, when Dacian approaches Chris while he’s working in his office he knows he’s there because his senses begin to tingle. This is actually a common occurrence in our own world when people lose a sense. Even in pop culture we can see some superheroes with heightened senses due to a loss of another!

In Spidersilk the novel, Mark is visited by ghosts who try to invade his and his friend’s lives.

In the novel Spidersilk, spiders use their spidersilk to help protect Mark. This substance isn’t just in Mark’s dimension though! In fact, its most popular debut in pop culture is via Spiderman who uses the webs to scale buildings and protect the innocent. In today’s world spidersilk is being talked about more and more. There’s even talk of using it for vaccinations to help avoid the need for refrigeration in areas where the luxury may not be available!

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark enjoys developing video games. To him, they are another thread to the multi-verse. Although today our video games aren’t quite as real as the video games in Mark’s dimensions, we are quickly producing new ways to make players feel like they’re actually in a different world. For instance, some teams have invented special equipment so a player actually feels when they are injured, whilst other teams are working to strengthen virtual reality techniques.

In Spidersilk the novel, the story takes place in many different dimensions. There’s a lot of theories based on dimensions in our own dimension, which makes the story even more fascinating. In our world, we seem to stick to our layer of the dimension, but in Spidersilk Mark not only dominates on his own dimension but battles foes from another dimension and still travels via hyperspace through other dimensions, including the dimension in which he dreams.

Being connected to other dimensions/worlds is a big part of the Spidersilk novel. Recently, on Mars one of our rovers has uncovered an item that looks quite a bit like a coffin on this planet. This could be proof that Mars was once inhabited, or was visited by intelligent life. Some sources even claim that the coffin has an ankh clearly sculpted onto it! The fact that such similarities have been found could show we are all actually connected more than we know!

“Darn, if those—damn— technology investors didn’t take so many credits. I mean—the company is doing well right now. It’ll take time to attain the extra funds.”_Chris in Spidersilk the novel

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

In Chapter 2 of Spidersilk the novel, the reader is briefly introduced to Ekaa, Chris’ wife. During the brief encounter we only learn that she wants her son to be able to attend school so he doesn’t get behind in life. Soon after, Chris ends up in Mark’s world. Although Ekaa doesn’t play a large role, it still shines light on the story. The name Ekaa is actually connected to the Goddess Durga who is believed to be behind the power of creation, sustainability and destruction in the Hindi religion. This makes the name perfect for a mother looking to provide her child with everything needed to succeed. However, does this mean that Ekaa could have played a part in the battle? What do you think?

Black holes play amazing roles in Sci-Fi movies and books, such as Spidersilk the novel. Recently, scientist discovered the biggest black hole yet. Although this in itself it pretty amazing, what really has everyone floored is the fact that the scientists can’t figure out how it was created so early in the development of the Universe. Check out more on the black hold and a fun interview by Neil DeGrasse  Tyson here:

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character Mark navigates hyperspace without a problem. However, in today’s world it’s a bit harder for us to get around. In fact, NASA sent off one of its fastest spacecraft in 2010. The spacecraft was designed to make it to Pluto and….sometime this year it just might. Crazy, no? You can read more on how fast/slow we can travel here.

“The sky was clear and blue; the sun was hidden by the nearby buildings yet was obviously colorful. The air was clean, slightly warm, and breezy. Reaching his car, he opened his door. Mark shuddered as, suddenly, that same hissing sound he had heard way back when this began was detected to his right.”- Spidersilk the Novel

In Spidersilk the novel there is an amazing connection between several different dimensions that the characters experience. Although scientist today are still on the fence about multi-dimensions, we can see their beauty just about anywhere we look. The physicist Richard Feynman talked about the entire universe being in a glass of wine. It makes sense when you think about all the elements in the wine, the way it reacts with other principles and so on. Like the characters in Spidersilk, our reality is a combination of dimensions, even if we ignore/can’t see all of them! For more on Feynman’s talk about wine, the universe and everything being connected check out this link:

“Ok, get this. Rae, was an independently wealthy technocrat and appeared to have no present financial issues. He has a number of profitable investments primarily in video game developers as well as a few other technology companies. Apparently he has a high level of technical skill by the looks of the resume.”- John in Spidersilk the novel

Throughout history brilliant ideas have been swept under the rug and declared too out of this world to confirm.

In Spidersilk the novel, multi-verse are the real deal and offer the story an exciting edge. There are many reasons why scientist believe that the multi-verse may be the real deal, what do you think? Check out this article to find out more about the theories and why they may soon be falsified.

“The decor of the Cyberpad was futuristic as anything, yet Mark could see slight undertones of a time before the computer. Everything had smooth lines and curves, rarely any excessive frill yet with a few appealing patterns. The cybernetic wall art was very interesting and painted directly onto the walls in bright vivid colors mixed with dark ones.”- Spidersilk the novel

Spidersilk the novel scratches the service of how vast our universe and the multiverse is. The main character, Mark is able to travel through hyperspace and encounters many other dimensions. Although it is easy to see everything is incredibly large, it is hard to fathom just how large it all is. For example, NASA just released the largest photo that has ever been take. The photo is only of a small area though, but as you zoom it you can see there’s so much more that the camera is still missing. It’s pretty incredible, check it out here:

Spidersilk the novel takes place in many locations in the multi-verse, which makes it exciting when a location rings a bell. The main character, Mark, references a place called Olympia which is the location in which he chooses to locate his videogames. On the flip side he also talks about a place called Olympus, where he is residing. Both exist in our realm though, which makes it all the more fun to image what Mark and his friend’s version of these places may be. In our thread in the multi-verse, Olympia is where the Olympic Games began and Olympus is a mountain in which the Greek gods existed. Both powerful places that deserve a second look, if not a visit!

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character, Mark, experiences a lot when he’s asleep. Although many would disregard his adventures, romance and battles as mere dreams others would consider it travel to another dimension. In fact, even in our reality, people sometimes consider their dreams to be real. Occasionally they’ll predict something that happens, or a dream will lead them to take on a new challenge or advise them to let something go. This certainly suggests that when we sleep we’re able to visit a new dimension, even if we don’t always remember it.
