Repulsion and Attraction. The silkworm could be said to be repulsive to look at, as could the way that silk is traditionally made. Silk however is a thing of beauty and wealth- attraction. When a silk Moth is allowed to emerge from it’s cocoon, it is a rare thing of beauty, but it cannot fly. It is living yet dead. In it’s processed form, silk is soft, while in it’s raw form, it is hard. It is hard yet soft. Silk is used for weddings and funerals, so we stop one species transmigration for another. While one is transformed one is not.
