Legends say this very potent version of “spice” mined on Kessel is produced from the webs of Energy Spiders and gives a brief telepathic boost. It is photoactive and therefore must be minded in total darkness. These energy spiders are unaffected by blaster bolts since they feed on energy.

Most everyone has seen or heard of Spiderman. The main lesson of this character that stands out is the one taught him by his dying uncle, “With great power comes great responsibility”. This is one that most humans would do well to listen to. Every day we see large corporation and powerful government abusing their authority and financial power. This is a lesson that serves in all areas of life and we will get into this more later. However, I thought I’d drop the obvious things first. How can I have a website on Spider Wisdom and not mention Spiderman? 😉
Additionally, I chose this image specifically for it’s light/dark dualism!

My brother found this one and sent it to me to watch. The associations are amazing how they parallel my own findings. Note the spider archetype (Makri) used in conjunction with the Hindu Goddess Kali. Also, note how the archetypal arachnid is both a mark of the Goddess’ “prophet” and a communication device of the Goddess. Also, this depicts how one cannot make themselves a prophet and how one must be chosen by the Divine and not the other way around. Here, Durga is depicted as a male and does not coincide with tradition. Notice in the dance the “hourglass” shape which can also be considered an aspect of Tantric symbolism and related to the MerKaBa symbol. Lastly, at he end – Kali’s final action creates a circle and bindu symbol, the symbol of the Higher Self. [This was the season finale, watch next season for the continuation]
