What is success to ET?
I manage to maintain an even keel most of the time...being a pretty laid back individual. But sometimes...that A**hole on the tollway that nearly killed me and my wife or...whatever ...brings out the worst in a person for a short while. Then you get control of yourself and calm down. You know..life, in general. It happens.
If every second of your life is monitored? Is there a scorecard or what?
Is there anyone who can cruise through this life unscathed and move on?
Maybe that why there are places like earth...cause few of us can manage to turn the other cheek ALL the time.

Hello Sleeper !!!!!!
What was the purpose of the Dinosaurs?
What was it that killed them off? I am guessing that it was not an asteroid as ET could have prevented it if they wanted to.
Are they a reminder of how quickly we could dissappear or are they more like a test for us to see how long it takes us to give life to them again?

I have a question about souls and integrity. Sorry if you went over this one already.
What about a soul, who for instance, is born into a corrupt household. They become a product of thier environment and live most of thier lives that way because that is all they know. In the 11th hour of life, they suddenly gain an ounce of integrity. Do they get bumped up a notch in thier next life for at least showing some effort?
Also, do some souls choose a scenario like this just for the experience?

I was wondering how you manged to keep up you're stories to allow this thread to go on for 200+ pages. Why is it that half these people are now tanking you're words as the ET gospel?
Seriously, this whole thread is frekin ridiculous.

Hello again Sleeper and waves to Milton. I just reread your blog for the zillionth time. That is such a fantastic adventure.
It seems that after this particular task on earth you may have one more elsewhere. After that, do you see yourself heading to that star-cluster disney world kinda place?
Has Milton told you how old your soul is?
I have had this re-acurring dream for as long as I can remember...I am at an airport or large mall type place and being pursued...any chance you can shed some insight. The dreams are usually very powerful and I wake-up kinda unsure of things.....really neat in a trippy sorta way.

You make good points but this is not the Truman show, or the matrix---if it were life would have no purpose or meaning whatsoever.
We are not being manipulated by anyone, or anything----as much as we would like that to be true because then nothing we do is really our responsibility.
Where in fact “everything” we do is our responsibility, no exclusions, no exceptions and no excuses, nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
Many of us would love to blame our problems on our circumstances and situations or evil entities---that we had no control over, so that we can then justified our anger, our hate and our jealousy
But until we learn to control those three main items there can be little harmony in our lives, nothing else works, well, drugs and booze maybe---
We fill our own plate with every single thing that is on it---no entity can slip anything onto our "attitude" plate without our knowledge and a wink from us.

Anger is a fuse box breaker for many instance and then resets when the smoke clears---that’s normal and not an indication of evil----unless we take it to the next level and turn it into vengeance---road rage, spouse rage, society rage, etc.
A human being is part of the whole, called by us "Universe"; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty.
Nobody is able to achieve this completely but striving for such achievement is, in itself, a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.
—ALBERT EINSTEIN (1879-1955)
