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.
