Our world is filled with unique creatures that appear to have magical abilities. Take the spider, for instance: it creates a beautiful work of art, then disappears like magic until prey stumbles into its trap. In this illusion, two volunteers prove that a 40-foot rope is real and solid before it's tied to a metal frame, creating a "web." The magician stands behind the web of rope, then his hands are tied and the lower part of his body is covered with a cloth. In an instant, he steps through the rope, drops the cloth, and reveals to the audience that he has "melted" through the impenetrable web. An impossible feat for any creature other than a spider...well, up until now!
