About The Book

Why was Soulwaves published on the 1st Full Moon of 2020?

Soulwaves is my first full novel.

It’s an exploration of how we came to be self-aware in the cosmos and where we might be heading.

Although it’s completely fictional, several events have already come to pass since I started writing it well over 15 years ago.

It could be channelled fiction or a channelling of one possible future.

Nothing in this book, or the novel Soulwaves : Insertions, is true. Neither is it necessarily false.

The novel is accompanied by an album of ambient music. At five hours long, many listen to it while reading.

What’s inside

Chapter 1 : Epochs

‘It’s time,’ said Councillor Seven. Not that she had a mouth, or the other Councillors had ears.

‘Are you sure they are awake enough?’ asked Councillor Four.

‘Not individually but together they are,’ insisted Councillor Seven.

Councillor Six, who had been managing the water consciousness, confirmed, ‘They are travelling freely now. No disambiguations in any teleports for fifty years.’

‘And the humans are shifting rapidly from being planetary abusers to caretakers,’ said Councillor Four, the overseer of the air consciousness.

‘I agree,’ said Councillor Seven. ‘Two to three more generations and they will have reversed their planetary decimation.’

‘So can we put it to the vote?’ asked Councillor Six.

The Council of the Light came to unanimous agreement. It was time to end Epoch Five and move to the unitary consciousness.

‘So it’s agreed,’ confirmed Councillor Seven. ‘This is the first galaxy where we can commence with Epoch Six.’

Soulwaves – a review by Dr JOY Madden

Soulwaves: A Future History by Tom Evans is a really interesting book. You might initially think it is just another science-fiction novel. However, it is more than that. The book also makes you consider deeper issues such as:

* how you (and others) came into existence
* why you exist at all
* who determines what happens in your everyday life
* what you can do about it (if anything)

Evans covers numerous ideas, weaving (and explaining) the concept of souls, soulwaves, entanglement, the Void, Anywhere, Anywhen, densification, etc.

The fact that we may already have the technology mentioned in the book makes you realise just how real the story could be. In that respect, this fictional novel transmutes into non-fiction as you read.

The 372 pages are split into 100 chapters. This means that each chapter is around two to four pages long, making it easy to read the book in stages to fit in with your personal life. Each chapter has just the right amount of enticement to make you excited to see what happens in the following chapter.

The story builds slowly. As each character’s adventure develops, you are slowly drawn into their lives more and more. As the momentum picks up you become quite engrossed and are left wondering in what direction things are heading.

Soulwaves – why I loved it

* Evans interweaves numerous disciplines to create the backdrop of the story, including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Geography, Economics, Astronomy, etc.

* Just when you think you have an explanation, there are unexpected twists and turns.

* You are taken completely into the minds (and souls) of the human and other characters.

* In passing, he mentions some wonderful inventions that we could well see. I particularly liked the concept of the 3D printing of “complete working ears for the profoundly deaf.”

* It is clever how ‘science fact’ is disguised in a fiction book – a great way to introduce the reader to those concepts.

Soulwaves – a further comment

Evans uses some beautiful descriptive language, e.g., “…like a bioluminescent phytoplankton, that sparkled when speaking or thinking took place.”

In fact, his wide range of vocabulary throughout the text illustrates just how passionately he loves the English language. Some of the many words that I loved in the book (ones you rarely see in common use) include the following:

albedo, avuncular, clairsentience, dalliance, doula, fug, geodesic, haptic, hypnogogic, obfuscation, orrery, populace, prevaricate, toroid, visage, whimsy, zeitgeist.

Soulwaves – self development summary

You probably need to read this book twice to truly understand why certain words, phrases and sentences were used, and what connection they had to events that take place later in the book. The story certainly makes you wonder if this is indeed where we (inhabitants of Earth) could be heading.

Why is this book on my self or personal development site? Mainly because it is also about the awareness of your Self (in the broadest possible sense) and its gradual development towards that ever-elusive ‘full potential’.

It would be good to see Soulwaves translated into other languages and have a truly global reach. It would also make a great TV drama or even a film – with sequels!

UPDATE AUGUST 2020 : the prequel/sequel is now written in the form of 12 short stories which predate, postdate and run in parallel with the novel.

About the author.

Tom Evans Speaker

Tom Evans is the author of many books on mindfulness, metaphysics and philosophy. He is an internationally recognised meditation guide and ambient music composer.

His latest works of fiction are out of this world, paradigm-shifting and mind-opening. Their genre is Metaphysical and Visionary fiction. They tell of an alternate and possible future and paint a picture of a past which meta-physicians will be comfortable with but that may irk a materialist scientist. The aim is not to disrupt and usurp but to postulate that not all we see is quite as we see it.

Tom’s first career was in broadcast television. He has switched his attention from the magic of TV to the magic of the mind.

Töm Evans

If you want a journey into the future and the stars, and are willing to let your mind wander & wonder this is the book for you.

With humanity, humour, curiosity, astronomy and geekery, this is a fabulous off the wall (or not!) insight into a possible future of earth.
