Much like the grooves in a vinyl record, or bits of information on a microchip the spider is able to produce long lasting and precise recordings of the sounds and activities going on around it.
Her web silk spinnerets have seven different spinners. Each one with a different type of silk that they produce. These are used in an astounding number of complex combinations.
She has one for building the framework of her web, one for producing the sticky trap in the center, still another for cocooning a meal that keeps it fresh, yet another to build her eggs sac.

If there is a new person close by she feels it in her tiny hair-like appendages and the spider hairs on her back and legs.
