In ancient Indian tradition, the spider fashions a web from himself to produce the main component of the universe. It extends threads between the sky and earth, which act as the connection between the cosmos and the earth. This brilliant guess was confirmed by modern scientific theories describing the structure of the universe as the web of cosmic strings. The universal model of the web appears also in the structure of the Internet. The stream of information- the “spider’s silk” - traveling through cosmic satellites reaches the most secluded corners of the world. The World Wide Web contains the intellectual achievements of the world. It can be graphically depicted as a huge brain or a heavenly web that hangs over the world. The spider seen in the picture carries a world time clock on its belly. A notable detail from the world of spiders: the abdomens of black widow spiders carry a coloration that resembles an hourglass.
