molten consciousness


Senior Member
At the moment the words penetrate Sophie’s molten consciousness, Callum shoves her away from him, and it’s like being wrenched awake from a beautiful dream by a shrieking alarm clock.

Context: At a public celebration, being infatuated with Callum, Sophie is swooned. As he is kissing her, they heard that some woman is having some sort of fit - an allergic reaction.

What does molten consciousness mean? some transcendental state of oneness?

Thank you.
