My friends, I am afraid you are really much more powerful than you ever imagined. You are truly magicians, because you have succeeded in convincing even yourselves that this world is not an illusion.
I never took this illusion you call "reality" as seriously as apparently you have.
While you were busy "facing reality" I preferred to fabricate my own. While you were busy inventing interesting new handicaps to inflict upon yourselves, I was watching from another universe. This is why I am able to have things come and go as I please.
Remember, as a man thinketh, so be it unto him. Do you know what that means? It means that if you believe strongly enough about something, it will happen for you, and possibly for others, if your belief is strong enough. But, instead of exercising your power of belief, you have allowed yourself to be convinced of a million things, that is why you're in such trouble today.
MY DEAR ALANA,
IF IT CAN BE EXPERIENCED, IT EXISTS.
YOU CANNOT EXPERIENCE SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T EXIST.
IF YOU ABSORBED HALF OF WHAT I HAVE TAUGHT YOU,
THEN A MIRACLE HAS INDEED OCCURRED.

The book infers we created the dinosaurs ( and all creatures ) as an attempt to use them as a sort of avatar to reside in to play the game. We kept improving it until we arrived at man.
This is my take, anyway...

Have you ever wanted to see a movie only to have someone spoil the ending or a major plot line either on purpose or by accident? How did you respond, have you ever lost interest or get upset because of it?
Pondering over this illustration and tying it into "enlightenment", I can see why it isn't exactly mainstream, those who "get it" don't want to spoil the surprise detract from the experience of now. That, and maybe they don't want the rest of the world looking at them like a bunch of loonies.
