NOTES

Acting as a sort of Prometheus, spiders are part of world-wide real-life legends about creations, discovery of fire and end of the world.
The Andaman Islands natives worship spider-woman Biliku, as both creator and bringer of fire.
In African mythology, a spider-man known as Yiyi brings fire to men from the sky.
In North-America, the Cherokee have a tale about Kananeski Amaiyehi, a water-spider who carried fire in a bowl.
The spider in myth appears to be the architect of the world, and his work (the web) is a metaphor of creation.
In many tribes of Central and Southern Africa, the god (Mulungu) abandoned Earth after seeing how men killed his servants and burned the woods.
Mulungu left for a heaven in the skies, moving on the gigant webs that seems to hang from the sky in the morning fog.

And this is how the legends were born: primitive people witnessed the Fire Spider come and go through the Ley passages.

Ther chaos in which the Ley Corridors are falling explains why, in the official Martin Mystère issue, the Hollow Earth chronology is a mess.
For instance, the Nazi officer Kostert who reappears in present time in "Al centro della Terra" (Martin Mystère n. 115bis), looking as young as decades ago.
Also, the "asian" people who claim of having founded the Hollow Earth long before the Atlantis age, in "Il giardino del diavolo" (Martin Mystère nn.165-166).
In both cases, the explanation is a time distortion: the "asian people" did come from a previous age, but to reach Sulka's Hollow Earth, they traveled through time (without realizing that).

More chronal chaos comes from the "Bermuda Triangle" mystery, which turned out to be connected to the Hollow Earth.
Things that disappeared in Il triangolo delle Bermude (Martin Mystere nn. 9-10) were later seen in "Al centro della Terra" (Martin Mystère n. 115bis), but without a solid explanation of the whys and the wherefores.

The Asian people in panel 4 are the predecessors of the hi-tech Region of "Il giardino del diavolo" (Martin Mystère nn.165-166).
That same issue features the passage to Ancient Greece that can be seen in panel 4. It also proves that the Asian People learned how to control the Ley Passages.
