Does anyone remember a book where the main characters encounter something called the Tiggewah's Web (or something similar). I'm pretty sure my spelling is wrong though.
Back in the 70s, I read a book (I think it was "The God Makers") where everyone in the universe had a connection called 'Tiggewah's Web', and if someone died it was felt in the web, sorta like when an insect gets caught in a spider's web the spider knows it because of the vibrations the web sends to the spider.
When a person dies, a "spoke" is broken and, if one is in tune with the "web" (most aren't) one can feel it, similar to the Force in Star Wars. I remember there were some "monitors" of Earthlings and one of the monitors fell in love with and impregnated an Earth girl, and was the first of his kind to die, which shook up the "web".
