	The word spider is used often in Nietzsche's works. The word "spider
skepticism" is used in Beyond good and evil" and I don't have the exact
source right now., "Spider" is repeatedly mentioned in Thus Spoke
Zarathushtra; in "The Tarantulas","The scholars", "The vision and the
riddle","Before sunrise","The three evil things" etc. The spider"spins"
its "cobweb" around our every thoughts. It is a form of skepticism but
in the worst possible form. Rather than increasing knowledge it destroys
it by creating needless suspicion, doubt and most of all it destroys our
faith in ourselves, in fact its very nature is to destroy all form of
faith.
