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!

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?

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?
