Watch interviewer's question trigger Steven Spielberg to realize something deeply personal about one of his own films

In this 1999 clip from Inside the Actors Studio, interviewer James Lipton helps Steven Spielberg understand something very personal about the final scene (below) in his own film Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) when the extraterrestrials on the mothership communicate with the humans by combining art and technology. Spielberg's response is just wonderful.
