I am a newbie in the Mistborn series, I am reading the first book (The Final Empire) and I have 150-200 pages left. I am really confused about the concept of moving through air using "Steel Pushing and Iron Pulling". Now I know about the basic usage of steel and iron in the series, they are used to "detect other metal objects adjacent of the user, in this case a Misting or Mistborn."
In the book we see that blue threads come out of a Misting or Mistborn's heart and those threads stick to the metal objects - that's why metal coins were used heavily for movement.
Now are these threads like Spiderman's web? and how do the metals telekinetically stay in the air when the threads stick to them?
Sorry if it is a silly question!
