Are all life forms in this universe(s) "tampered" with by ET's? That is to say, is a planet ever left alone to their own devices, and if so do these planets ever make it to the utopia stage and come to a higher understanding through eons of pain, wars, and all other bad things? Or are all sentient life forms that exist or will ever exist designed and put there on purpose?
I ask this because I can't get the idea of a "Star Trek" like existence out of my head.
Why must humans be eternally condemned to an existence of only mere space cities in the future, when there is so much more out there?
All my life I've always wanted to be able to go and explore the stars and other worlds, and haven't really cared much for what NASA and other industries feed the public. I understand holding back ET tech over periods of time, but to hold it all back from us indefinitely doesn't seem right. I would think that eventually, through perseverance and lessons learned, a civilization would eventually gain the rights to explore the vast depths of the universe(s) unfettered.
You mention that there are other ET life forms that visit us or even live here, why were they given the rights to hop on to this planet or explore to us, yet humans are given a solid "no" in any attempts to go beyond the solar system? I guess I could be making a mistake in thinking that we were on this planet before other ET species that are here currently, but the point about exploring still stands.
I guess my point is, I understand that as individuals we will (hopefully) learn our lessons and be freed of this ball and chain over lifetimes of learning, but I can't say that I wouldn't enjoy seeing the human race progress past our solar system to "go where no one has gone before".
I guess exploring space (or seeing humans explore space) is a fantasy I will have to let go of, and is only a fantasy I have simply because I currently reside in a human container.

Now, if indeed time were a simultaneous event, where would "advancement" come in? Progress is linear, isn't it? Yet, if the moment is always "now", there is no room for progress or regress. Why should one "work towards" something, when they can simply be that thing right now? I apply this directly towards the concept of "advanced humanity". If one knows the characteristics that makes a truly "advanced, loving" being, why can't they simply embody those?
Where do malevolent "Prison-guard" entities come in?

So Earth is a prison planet, I understand that. But will Earth ever reach a point where we will all be spiritual beings, with extremely advanced technology, and be worthy of being called equals amongst the more mature space empires? Will we ever be equal as a civilization to Greys, Reptilians, Sirians, etc?
And you stated that there are many cloaked ET ships in our atmosphere, how come we aren't crashing into them?
Oh, and does the government know that our solar system is inhabited?

I wanted to tell you sleeper that everything is very timely. My son who is in the STARS program at the local school, who is also in the upper 90% in science in the Nation, told me, that he has had visions where he was living on another planet. Well, I had just read your story the night before and had it saved to favorites,"A day with an E.T." and so with out skipping a beat I took him to the story and read it with him. He was amazed and yet acted very casual about it. He did however crack up at the part about the food court on Uranus... Other than that he fully accepted your story as it is and enjoyed knowing that others share in his visions. He also mentioned that the windows he saw were tinted green for viewing, did you also see the green windows?
And if so where were they located?

The politically correct amongst us like to revel in the diversity of animal (and plant) live on earth. Yet our animals often cause us great harm. A fellow on vacation met his death last month only a short way from here by hitting one of our largest (wild) land mammals with his car. We have all been bitten, scratched, stepped on or poisoned by one of earth's critters.
My question to you, sleeper, is why are they here?
Why do we need the ones that bite, sting, envenomate or scare the dickens out us?
Or do they just add to the challenges of life on our little prison planet?
Do all lower level planets have similar animal life to test the test worthy?
