It’s hard to explain why over 3 million people from more than 150 countries around the world have taken something called The Animus Soul Age Test in recent months—a staggering number—the result of thousands upon thousands of shares; over 250,000 shares to be exact! Growing by thousands more everyday.
“With everything going on in the world at the moment, I’m not surprised Animus has hit a nerve,” says Tiffany FitzHenry, the author of the now famed Animus Soul Age Test and the new trilogy it’s based on. “It’s truly about where we are…humanity…right now.”
And when you meet her it’s obvious, she isn’t terribly fazed by the growing worldwide fascination with her debut novel, ANIMUS, the first book in her forthcoming saga, THE OLDEST SOUL.
“There’s been an incredible outpouring no one could have predicted about this test, and the trilogy it’s based on, and endless questions flooding in for me,” says the author.
“Questions like: ‘How do you know these things about the human soul?’ ‘Where did these 9 soul types and their descriptions come from?’ And ‘why does it feel so real and so accurate?’ Leaving people very curious as to why…
‘It’s just not like other quizzes…’
And if you’ve taken it you’ll know, it’s not.
“When people read their results, it’s both not what they were expecting, and like some kind of eerie reminder. Same with the novel. They’re constantly asking how it can feel so true to who they are, on the deepest of levels. And the truth is I don’t know—but the quiz nails people. And the questions raised by this trilogy are big ones, questions somehow wired into us. And it’s fun to imagine knowing the answers. Who are we? Why are we here? Is fate a real force in your life? Have you lived before? How many times? I think thats why so many people are drawn to it—”
The author also wants to try to clear something up.
“A vast number of those who take the test say they go on to scower the Internet for more information on their soul type only they can’t find anything else about it. And that’s because I wrote these descriptions—meaning, the nine soul types, their descriptions and of course the fictional novel, which the types are based on, I wrote from ‘non-existence’ into ‘existence’. You might say I made them up, only, it’s not as simple as that.
After I finished the first draft of Animus, I was telling a friend about it and about the world around the ‘Da Vinci Code’ meets ‘Twilight’ kind of story, and they said to me, “So you’ve read The Tibetan Book of The Dead then, right?” I hadn’t. I’d never even heard of it before!
After looking at me a little strange they went on to inform me that some things in Animus mirror concepts from that ancient text.
What I’ve since discovered can’t be logically explained and it’s that many things in this trilogy somehow harken back to ancient concepts I knew either little or nothing about from not only The Tibetan Book of The Dead but the Bhagavad Gita, The Dao De Jing, and even the Bible, all sort of thrown into a blender with lots of mystery and action and this incredible love story. What’s even more eerie are the consistent reports from fans who say somehow the book ‘feels familiar’ to them as they’re reading it, they just can’t explain it.
Humbly, I’ve come to believe there’s a higher purpose at work here. I keep kind of joking (not joking) that I’m on a need to know basis with the universe. I just keep showing up and this story keeps telling itself. All I do know for sure is that this book and the test are speaking to everyone, from all walks of life, on the level of soul, on the level of spirit, on the level of the only truth there really is. The thing that connects us all.
The real truth that the great C.S. Lewis tried to tell us a hundred years ago, that “You don’t have a soul, you ARE a soul … you have a body.”
“Highly recommend if you’re looking for a quickly paced, page turner! Watch out Katniss Everdeen, Eve is here! Five stars!!”
