“It was similar to the setting in one of his video game scenes. ‘Hello’ a female voice said with a very inquisitive tone. ’Who is there?’ It was dark outside, and he could see only parts of the tree line. Mark turned to face the voice. ‘I-I’m Mark Khiop.’’Oh, I know you. The…the multithread guy. I have been reading about you. With the spiders?”_Spidersilk the novel

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character, Mark, is protected by spiders from another dimension. These spiders are as big as a gaming console and produce strong spider silk. In our world, spiders vary in size and shape, but they all produce strong spider silk. Thanks to pop culture, many people are curious as to what would happen if a spider who has been exposed to radiation would do to a human being. The concept of Spiderman in the comics instantly comes to mind, but in our reality its more than likely that the spider’s radiation will do absolutely nothing to you if you’re bitten. However; if you do come across a spider that has been affected by radiation, the presence alone might be enough to cause harm.

“’Wow! What a story. Did you ever fear the worst?’ Isis smiled as she responded. ‘Not really, it did not seem like my life was threatened at the time, although I suppose Sett could have walked in with a gun at any time, especially since we were making such intense announcements’”_Spidersilk the novel

For some time, scientist have argued about the potential of a multi-verse. There’s lots of arguments for the pro and con multiverse theories, which are pretty fascinating. However, as time passes, scientists seem to be pointing more and more in the direction of a multiverse based on facts we already have, like gravity. In Spidersilk the novel, the multiverse is already common knowledge for the main character Mark. Perhaps, as scientists discover more about the multiverse, we may be living in a reality similar to Mark’s.

In Spidersilk the novel, the main character, Mark, travels through hyperspace which is a compelling aspect of the plot. In our own world, hyperspace travel seems like a long shot, because we're just not tech savvy enough to be there yet. However, recently, there was a report of a mummy wearing what appears to be adidas shoes. Is this a coincidence, or has time travel actually been proven to be real? Whether or not it's true, it's still a fun concept to toy around with, along with the countless other time traveling coincidences.

When it comes to the durability of spider silk, which plays a large role in Spidersilk the novel, there’s not a whole lot that is surprising as the world seems to be running with the substance now. More recently, architects spoke of how this amazing material could be used in future designs. Between the durability and flexibility of the substance, there’s no doubt it will become a huge component in our future existence.
