“Why do you make those things up in your video games? I mean, in the last video game you designed, a city called Olympia of the Pacific Northwest rather than the real city of Olympus on Lake Victoria. There were some things that were a little similar, yet it was nearly always rainy and it seemed to have too many evergreen trees around, in my opinion. Why lie like that? Why not simply call it Olympus? More like the real thing we live with?”_Tink in Spidersilk the novel

Hyperspace is one of the coolest aspects of many science fiction stories, including Spidersilk the novel. However, we have yet to make traveling via hyperspace a reality. Luckily, some scientists are stating that proving string theory, or even the existence of other dimensions would be a huge step in the right direction. In fact, proving, or finding, more than the 4 dimensions we have all come to know, may be the trick that will change the way we get around for good. This development would mean harnessing it to travel and explore a world beyond our own neck of the woods at a speed that we can only see in the movies and our imaginations.

“She [Isis] might be here somewhere, according to his senses. Mark knelt down and placed his hand out toward the ground. A large spider emerged from under his shirt sleeve. Mark instructed it, “Go and locate Isis.” Mark made a brief sweep of the area then decided to visit her place instead.”_Spidersilk the novel

“Moments ago, I was in a board meeting. Sales of our explorer class are up 20 percent from last month, and it sounds like we are going to have some new clients! I presented it to Darkwaters, the underwater resource miners, and it was like selling itself. It felt like I was practically stealing the deal. The potential for so much profit was there.”_Jaul from Spidersilk the novel
