The Fable of the Spider, By James Wadman

There once was a spider who watched over everyone’s life.  Each life was a single strand of silk, interwoven with thousands of others in a beautiful web.  The spider sat in the middle, always creating new lives and mending the broken silk of lost lives.

A distant star saw who shined nearby asked the spider how she crafted a web so beautifully.

“I am the evil,” the spider replied.  “I give the world life, with intrinsic threads of malevolent silk.  And from my evil, I bind the world with a challenge to overcome, and the people learn to love.  It is not me, but the heart of humanity, that makes my web perfect.”
