In the following lecture I will give an introduction to the new field of scientific future research
and its sensational findings. A new method makes the future visible and unveils its arachnomorphic
structure. In the second part of the lecture I will discuss the effect artificial insemination - a
given practice for nowaday's spiders - has on web-related evolution and we will close with an
outlook on the genderdiversity to come.
The new method, derived in a series of elegant entomological investigations allows an unexpected
view into the future of earth: The today dominating Homo sapiens will be superseded by an
arachnomorphic species. That is a spider-like species.
The recently developed method not only places arachnology into an anthropological context, but
considers the arachnotic structure of images as they frequently appear among other places in the
human psyche and everyday life. Related discoveries from different sciences like evolutionary
psychology, experimental physics or sociobiology show the highly significant preference for a
variety of thread-bound constructions like lines, knots or nets. When analyzing the underlying
structure of our ideas and inventions we find a networking dynamic in nearly every part of life,
science, art or society.
We must confirm the fact that the arachnoidic species of the future will develop out of the today
known spiders. The results still are a little vague. For sure we know that the spider-like species
is the dominating life form. And humans still exists. At least a human structure was found.
Supported by contemporary genetic technologies the increasing nuclear radiation presents optimal
evolutionary conditions for spiders to establish themselves as cultural superior life form. In the
Tschernobyl area Robert Baker, University of Texas, found the rate of evolutionary changes higher
than you would expect it to be in 10 million years. That is a raser high mutation rate.
Since thousands of years mankind tried to get knowledge about the future. But the wellknown mantic
methods like Tarotcards, Astrology, IQ-Tests, etc, never work propperly. They are useful only for
the next time interval and they are transparent exclusively to a very few. For the period of time we
are discussing here these mantic methods are not useful. Furthermore we have to question their
scientific reliability. Therefore we came to develop a new and reliable method for future
As you may know the human mind is build like a network, is organized as one and functions as one as
well. Thereby it is the perfect link between a future population on earth and today.
The advanced timetraveling and telepathic civilisation of the future invades nowaday's psyche
via dreams and channeling. The dream suggests itself as point of contact because it is, as Sigmund
Freud said, accompanied by a low endopsychic censorship. Channeling means the contact between living
beings and entities of other dimensions. The human mind is at the receiving end. (So we have to
rewrite the theories of the unconcious). The contact between future and today is initiated by a
spider entity (SPE). We speak of SPE as long as we don't know if it is an individual or a group
which is contacting us.
While being stored away into memory the origin of the future's messages is suppressed. Later when
released out of memory mode the messages have been transformed into ego-based intentions;
occasionally with an ego-dystonic quality. The result is a widely spread thread fixatation, an
obsession with weblike organisations and all kinds of rituals honoring future-related
Certainly you know about the newest theory of experimental physics, the String theory or Superstring
theory. It claims that the smallest part of every atom is not some particle, but a tiny tiny
string. The different quarks we discovered up to now - "up, down, strange,charmed, bottom, top" -
and their antiparticles are thought to be different energy positions of one and the same
Newest calculation of J.Richard Gott, Princetown University, prove that two strings when speeding
at close range along each other produce loops. The submicroscopic area is swarming with tiny tiny
loops. These loops are so fast that they reach into the past. They reach backwards 10 -42 sec...
It is a proven fact that these strings do travel through different times. Albert Einstein's theory
of relativity postulates similar rules for the submicroscopic and the macromicroscopic univers.
Therefore the arachnoids of the future use precise physical techniques for their communication with
May I sum up: The future sees an arachnoidic species as cultural superior life form. Individuals or
groups - up to now we are not able to confirm their identity without doubt - contact us via time
loops and psyche projecting certain images. Because we are not conscious of this process we
translate the projected information into web-related ideas. And therefore we carry out the spinning
Let me give you some examples: Literature offers a wide range of graphic descriptions concerning the
future. Now we are able to read them properly. To name only two of thousands let me choose
"Spiderman" and the Bible. Artists often have a clearer view of things to come. Nevertheless they
often take images they conceive too literally, as we observe in "Spiderman", for the Homo sapiens
hasn't gotten the power of a spider (like Peter Parker), his intentions are secretly taken over by
a spiderous being instead.
Another very important book in our culture is the Bible. Thousands of years old the story still
structures the western societies. It's main symbol is the cross. A cross is the abstract of two
interwoven threads, a knot. It symbolizes not only the smallest common denominator of a web but
also the Homo sapiens bound into and sacrificed on the web. The invention of the cross as a
leading symbol resulted in the ability to think in abstract terms. This process formed the
building of web-related brain structures and therefore conditioned global networks, today's
internet and obn. The wide dissimination of the internet is closely related to the religious
importance of the cross in social systems. Today we observe the fusion of the cross and arachnoids
through the existence of the internet.
The spider entity, when contacting us out of the future, hides all traces of her communication
with us. We only can speculate on the reason of this strategy. We assume it is part
protection of today's living spiders and part a guarantee that current technical developments
will go on undisturbed.
What we observe instead is a widespread fear, phobia and defensiveness of spiders,
the need to train our children at a very young age in web-balance.
But also a high creative potential has here its roots. For example do we owe the invention of
writing to these circumstances.
Did you ever ask why the landscapes we live in in Europe are covered not only by nets of streets,
railways or electricity but also lined with fences? Fences remind people of save and homely
aspects of the future.
We understand the structure of lattice windows. For we love to take a net-structured view to the
world. Even if it is sometimes connected to a trapped feeling.
We have to face the problem of threadfixatation. For thread fixatation - and we all know how
disturbing that can be sometimes - is strongly related to the arachnoidic species of the future.
After immobilizing their prey spiders wrap it with silk threads to store it until they are getting
hungry. So we don't have to wonder any longer why so many eatable things are somehow or other
connected to threads or nets. Or why nearly all the food we need for survival has to be carried
home in plastic bags? This occurance is called identification. It is arachnotic induced
Hopefully I don't have to point out what is driving all of us to get ourselves online. And why
again and again we enjoy our fingertips crawling on the keyboard? Are we spiders or prey? When
and more interessting how did you experience the influence of an arachnoidic entity after going
Another future-related topic besides nets and threads we find in all constellations which include
hair. Hairy legs are a feministic issue. Not only in the USA but in Germany too. Due to its
lack of hairiness a human leg can not be compared with a spider leg. Nevertheless, wrapping it in
fine nylons will certainly enhance its attraction. Though the hairs of spider legs are sensory
organs, netstructured fabrics function as an ersatz organ. For undivided effect be sure to remove
all natural grown hair of the human leg before you wrap it in texture.
At this point I want to say some words about the reproduction of spiders. Today spiders still have
seperate sexes. Aside from a few exceptions the females are larger than the males. Because of
their small body size, males need fewer molts to reach maturity than do females; consequently,
males mature earlier.
The cultural task of webconstruction generally is done by female spiders nowadays, because most
male spiders change their habits after their last molt. They leave their retreats or webs, and
often they no longer even catch prey. When approaching a female, males always risk being dealt
with as prey. Spiders have therefore developed a special courtship behavior that generally
precedes mating. This courtship is species specific and ensures that hybridization is avoided.
The common belief that spider males are eaten by the females during or after copulation is true
only for a very few species. In most cases a male either walks away or beats a hasty retreat
right after copulation. But in any case male spiders have rather short lives; many die soon after
copulation. Females usually live much longer.
Now the question of all questions! How do they do it? the answer is: They practise artificial
insemination. When the male spider reaches maturity it spins a small special web. The sperm is
put onto this sperm web and transfered to special copulatory organs which are located near its
mouth. The sperm can be kept here if necessary all its life. When a female spider accepts the
courtship the male inserts its palps ( as these organs are called) into the vulva of the female.
The female stores the sperm in a special skin bag. Later when her eggcells are ready fertilization
takes place. Several batches of eggs - cocoons - can be fertilized, even if only a single
copulation has taken place. So the female spider chooses the time of fertilization. She is
managing the artificial insemination.
Just compare this elegant natural technique with techniques humans use nowaday's and realize how
clumsy they are. And you’ll understand why future arachnoids stayed with their technic of
I will now demonstrate how the genderdiversity which we find with arachnoids in the future is due
to different sets of sex chromosomes. The exact process is not yet fully unveiled. Only we can
guess they used genetic engeneering supported by nuclear radiation. Maybe the beginning was
accidental, that means induced by us, by our way of life; maybe it was intended, that is spiders
of today are much more intelligent as we think it possible. So the how we don't know, but the what
The sex chromosomes of spiders are X chromosomes. Contrary to insects or mamals spiders possess
no Y chromosome. Aside from the "regular" chromosomes (the autosomes, A) , two X chromosomes
represent the sex chromosomes. Whereas female spiders possess a dual set of these X chromosomes
(2A+X1X1X2X2), male spiders have but a single set (2A+X1X2). Consequently, after meiosis the egg
cells have one set of X chromosomes, but the sperm cells are of two types: either they likewise
possess one set or they lack sex chromosomes altogether (A + 0). Sex determination is thus
dependent on the type of sperm cell that fertilizes the egg.
A combination of reproduction techniques like genetic engeneering in combination with artificial
insemination, parthogenesis and cloning made it possible to multiply the set of sex chromosomes.
This results in a wide range of sexes, though they all are still arachnoidic.
About the merging between arachnoids and humans we don't know very much yet. But a complete research
program has been started on this topic. Soon we will know more about possibilities, techniques and
problems concerning the merging of spiders and humans.
