Many scientists claim that while we haven’t discovered any other civilizations in our galaxy, they have discovered us and put us in planetary quarantine.
To them we are just wild creatures, and they treat us the same way we treat ants. They’ve locked us up in a galactic zoo to watch us while we’re all very primitive.
For these advanced aliens, the entire planet Earth is a zoo. A community of scientists gathered in Paris at the Cité des Sciences et de L’Industrie museum to address the Fermi Paradox, according to Forbes.
Scientists from METI (Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence) suggested at this conference in Paris that advanced extraterrestrial civilizations stop communicating with us and only announce to us when they want to and when they deem it important. They believe that humans would be unable to cope with the realization that we are not alone.
According to Jean-Pierre Rospars, director of research at the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, it is as if they quarantined us because they believe that understanding them would turn our society upside down.
Radio signals have so far struggled to communicate with SETI. The truth is likely not what we want to know. It is conceivable that these sophisticated galactic entities have a firm grip on the extent of the interaction and will not react if the other civilization is not sophisticated enough.
The theory that we are kept in cosmic quarantine is not new; has been discussed by UFO enthusiasts for decades.
