Steven had a close encounter when he was a child. I think that he wrote ET based on his childhood. If you watch the film closely and his life there are too many coincidences there. I concluded that he found ET running around in his backyard and gave him powers, then the government took the Alien away. At least, that's what I believe about steven.
I want to see the crystal skulls.

Spielberg’s most successful alien film, E.T., was also an Oval Office favourite. Incumbent this time was Ronald Reagan, who, like both Carter and Spielberg, was also known to be keenly interested in UFOs. During a private screening of E.T. at the White House in 1982 in which Reagan and Spielberg were seated together, the President is reported to have leaned over to his guest and whispered: “You know, there aren’t six people in this room who know how true this really is.”[xvi] Spielberg related this story to Hollywood television producer Jamie Shandera shortly after the screening.
