"As the spider creates its cobweb, it lives in it, plays in it, and eventually swallows it. He manifests in it and again he withdraws the whole universe in himself." 1-1:7 Mundaka Upanishad

A nightmare bleeds over into a dreamer’s reality.

악몽과 현실 사이서 균형을 잃다.

Crap, this is genuinely unsettling, really good animation.
I still persist that spiders are cute and cuddly, but if anything was to change my mind, it’d have to be this.

shit got real

Without a doubt, one of the best pieces of content I've ever viewed. This is seriously incredible.

my basic reduction from this short film is that you have a villain. a nasty villain who enters a sacred place, and violates and murders what was justice, knowledge and wisdom. This monster has no respect or reverence for anything good and kills everything it encounters. Once it has made it's way into the sacred place it does what it has become, and violates and destroys what was once a truly beautiful sacred place. Of course though, these mindless villains do not have a soul, they expect that their villainy will never go unaccounted for but this isn't the case and our hero the spider saves the day.

Except the issue with the spider is that it is a predator. That's the beauty of predatory animals is that they balance the order, they destroy pests and generally leave humans unmolested. This spider, from the corpse of this poor slain woman, lays what would seem to be eggs and more spiders rise. That is a general concept about predator - prey. The more prey there is, the more predators it can sustain.

great movie.

I just love how it looks of what I have seen.
