Blending science with an evocative narrative, Christopher Dewdney takes readers on a fascinating journey to the most elusive and fluid of the dimensions lying within human perception: time. nbsp; As he did with the hours between dusk and dawn in Acquainted with the Night, Dewdney unlocks all of today, tomorrow and yesterday through his wide-ranging narrative. He shows how time has been imagined through the ages in mythology, philosophy, art and science, answering the questions that have engaged inquiring minds since before recorded history. Why does time flow in only one direction? Is time travel actually possible? Why does time go faster the higher you are from the earth's surface? Spun out across the seasons of a year and through encounters with friends, family and strangers, Soul of the World offers extraordinary insights into the nature of time and its influence on us.… (mere)

I've had a couple of attempts at reading this book. This will be my third and final attempt! Interesting but for me came across a bit self indulgent. Certainly lyrical at times and engaging at numerous points. Overall though, left be feeling indiffernt. ( )

This is a terrible book -- I wouldn't have read it if it hadn't been a gift from a dear friend. Mr. Dewdney has read a lot of stuff about Time, and he regurgitates it in an articulate but uncritical way. Life is too short to write a detailed critique. Probably the crux of my complaint lies in the fact that Mr. Dwedney can't decide whether Time can be run backward or not -- turbulence theory would say no, but he obviously wishes the answer was yes. The final chapters, saturated with uncritical readings of Moreavec and Dyson, are painful, full of fantasy about "superbeings" and a naive belief that intelligent life will saturate the Universe. ( )
