This Soul'd World: The Rise of Consciousness

by William Disdale

Sci-Fi and Fantasy

LoveReading View on This Soul'd World: The Rise of Consciousness

Firstly I’d like to say I love the play on words with this title. This Soul’d World is presented as a new interpretation on old practices, in terms of looking both outwards and inwards to answer philosophical/ spiritual questions about life with a sci-fi twist.

A science fiction adventure that crosses dimensions and themes. I liked that this book uses science fiction tropes to explore philosophical questions. The chapters are short and easy to read, and you find yourself reading “just one more” to progress further in the story. 

Interestingly, the main character of this story is Callison Trebla, a man about to retire, not a character at the start of a career embarking on an adventure. I liked this characterisation, I think it adds a sense of honest reflection to the more spiritual themes in this book. I was drawn in to this story early on and Callison early on and I was interested to see how the story progressed and in which ways the science fiction elements would be incorporated. 

I think that this book has a bit of something for everyone, there’s science fiction, spirituality and exploration into people and behaviour with a family that has endured a tragedy. As well as an entertaining story with endearing characters, this is a thought-provoking read that I would recommend for anyone looking for a multi-dimensional book.

This Soul'd World: The Rise of Consciousness Synopsis

Callison Trebla is on the verge of a discovery that will unveil the nature of reality to a troubled world. The discovery will force the question: is life just a biological accident? A pointless drama playing out on a random rock in the universe? Or is there meaning? Something deeper, something more subtle than our senses suggest? Is consciousness created by the brain? Or is the brain created by consciousness? Does the body have a soul? Or does the soul have a body?
