About the Author
In 2002 Steven Norquist experienced that final and irrevocable event known as Awakening. The effects of this experience and the nature of its power were described by Steven a year later in his essay entitled, "What is Enlightenment, no, I mean really, like what is it?" This challenging essay found wide circulation on the internet where it was praised, debated and understood to be a profoundly clear and direct modern explanation of Enlightenment. In 2010, having lived in the Awakening for 8 years, Steven now offers "Haunted Universe - The True Knowledge of Enlightenment" a dark work that awakens the emptiness within that we all sense, but fear to acknowledge.

I don't have the book to reference now, but the author (literally) would like you to believe that in order to
find the truth, prepare to have your heart ripped out of your chest, and your limbs torn off your body. On
and on he went in graphic detail about bull_____. I bought this book because I loved the article he wrote
years ago and thought I have to read this guy's book. Do NOT make the mistake I did and waste hard earned money
on this garbage.
This revised edition of "Haunted Universe" is a more concise, cut-to-the-bone version of the first book. It's a warning to all who would get involved in this non-duality business.
Norquist's book conjures up a vision of a world like Roadside America - Roadside America was a huge train-set attraction I visited when I was a kid, a miniature town the size of a basketball court that you could walk around on a sort of catwalk. The cars move, and the trains roll, and the people wave. Only in Norquist's town, that is to say, the world we consider real, No One Is In Charge, and No One Exists. The cars move and the trains roll and the people wave, but they (we) are automatons in a universe without a switch, that no one ever built. Why would anyone want this? If this is reality, who would want to know? Steven says once you do know, you'd never want to go back.
Which reminds me of JG Ballard's science fiction book, "The Crystal World." In it, the world and everything in it starts slowly crystallizing, even the people. When one of the men who was turning to crystal was being pulled out of the Florida swamp that was also turning to crystal, he begged to be returned. He ran away from his rescuers and fled back to the crystal swamp. JG Ballard only leaves you guessing as to what it is about turning to crystal that is so compelling. For Norquist, and others like him, Truth is the ultimate quest, and anything else is "bull**it". And of course, if it IS the truth, what choice do we have, anyway?
