Are Aliens Zoo Keepers and secretly monitor our activities? Here’s what eye-popping ‘Zoo Theory’ say

Alien life and UFO were hot topics among the alien seekers and conspiracy theorists in the year 2017. Some believe that we are not alone and some form of intelligent life exists in some other part of the world which also gave upward thrust to many conspiracies this year.

Recently, SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch was mistaken as UFO while some still claimed to see mysterious alien spacecraft alongside the SpaceX rocket. The launch was so bizarre that drivers on the road got distracted and crashed their cars.

Some alien hunters including Scott C Waring from UFO Sightings Daily claim to find proof of extraterrestrial life on Mars and Moons. Some alien buffs also believe that UFO lingers around International Space Station and talk to astronauts. While some blame the US space agency NASA for hiding the existence of the alien life despite knowing the truth.

Apparently, our every attempt to find extraterrestrial life failed, and no one was able to prove the existence of aliens. Meanwhile, a radio astronomer from MIT who believes in the existence of alien life came up with a theory to prove why we have failed in establishing a contact with aliens even after several attempts.

It is to be noticed that recently, METI scientists beamed a signal into space to establish contact with aliens. The scientists have sent a set of radio signal with such instructions that they would definitely get some reply back on Earth within 25 years. However, the universe is vast, and the possibility of receiving the signals is minimal.

According to the “Zoo Theory”, given by John A. Ball, an MIT radio astronomer, aliens might be living in some distant galaxy, and they know about the existence of humans, but still, they are purposefully hiding from us and avoiding contact with humans. The theory further states that aliens aren’t still advance enough. Therefore they don’t interfere with our activity, similar to zookeepers at a zoo or nature preserve.

“I suggest, first, that mankind is neither alone nor number one. Advanced civilizations exist and exert some degree of control over the galaxy. Second, they’re aware of us at least at some level. But are they concerned with us? We may be only an obscure entry in their tabulation of inhabited regions of the galaxy. Third, we’re unaware of them because either they want us to be unaware| they’re hiding (But this means that they care about us, else why bother to hide?)|or because we’re not (yet) clever enough to know that they’re there, but they don’t care whether we know,”  Ball said.

Ball believes that aliens are curious to know about humans; which is why people report thousands of UFO sightings each year that further results in mysterious and unsolved conspiracies. “ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) may be discreetly and inconspicuously watching us but not dabbling,” Ball wrote in his paper on the subject.

According to Freeman Dyson,”a reasonable long-range program of searching for evidence of intelligence in the galaxy is indistinguishable from a reasonable long-range program of general astronomical exploration.”

“I predict two further blows to our ego in the near future: We shall discover that our mental processes can be modeled, or even duplicated in detail, by a mechanism such as a computer. Thus vitalism, now living only in a few human minds contemplating themselves, will nally be dead. And we shall become aware of our relationship with advanced extraterrestrial intelligence. Will we then still believe that we are the chosen people of God?” argued author.

Previously, researchers at the University of California Berkley researching for the $100m ‘Breakthrough Listen” project, had successfully detected 15 strange and repetitive Radio signal bursts radiating out from a small galaxy using the Breakthrough Listen Project by accumulating 400 terabytes of observations of FRB 121102’s location. Scientists believe that aliens located in the distant galaxy might be sending these signals.

Moreover, an astronomer from the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) claimed that we are heading towards our first contact with aliens. At the World’s Nano Fair, Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at SETI told Futurism that they are going to find intelligent alien life within 20 years and for that, he bet everyone a cup of coffee. He is optimistic about the fact that we are incredibly close to answering the question of whether we are alone in the Universe or not. He also confidently said that within a couple of decades he can prove that aliens do exist.

  • We've been quarantined in a simulation where we will never find life to treat the way we treat life on Earth or aliens to treat the way humans treat humans by extraterrestrials advanced enough to have visited us. There is no spoon, the cake is a lie.

    • LOL....oh cry me a river. How about this, an advanced alien race would come and save us - show us what were doing wrong. Your generation is always looking at the bad done...not the good. SHAME!

      • Humans are a violent and hateful species. If we can't accept others with different skin tones or beliefs... why would we accept a species that looks totally different than us.

      • An alien civilization has no human generation of its own as a basis for judgment and would quarantine anything slightly more dangerous than a pathogenic microbe as a precaution, humans have nukes and are far more intelligently avoided than pathogenisis. You're expecting them to come here and ask you what your name is, do you talk to ants you encounter asking them what great advances they've made and help them gather seeds? Because we are a Type 0 civilization on the Kardashev scale which does not even rate on that scale and any exrtraterrestrials advanced enough to visit us are Type III making us insects on a cosmological scale of advancement compared to us. My age aside, would you call Dr. Michio Kaku or Neil deGrasse Tyson or Stephen Hawking pessimistic old fuddy-duddies for giving you their same opinion on the Kardashev scale? I don't think so, and any physics professor teaching a cosmology course would give you a perfect failing grade for not grasping the material no matter what their age happens to be.

    • If we’re in a “simulation”, then our actions are pre-programmed, and we’re not responsible for the consequences. We’re not real.

      • Exactly, you might want to read psychology papers on the neuroscience of free will if you have not already. Everything was pre-determined the eternity before everything existed, advanced aliens would know that and quarantine us as a precaution without any further consideration for their actions than a deterministic human physicist named Albert Einstein stated that "GOD does not play dice.".

  • Aliens: no! But God, yes! From the movie "Fences" "Better get ready for the Judgement.

    WAT? Is this English?

  • "for that he betted everyone a cup of coffee" Perhaps this was written by aliens - the not very advanced ones.

  • So, some knucklehead dreamed up an idea that has already been in several low-budget sci-fi movies. Did that really warrant an article being written about it? Obviously it didn't warrant proofreading.

    • Either a 12 year old wrote this article for school, or the author didn't care too much about it to proofread it.

  • I think all these websites cropping up these days that are related to space exploration are all done at the Rand Corporation or some other NWO think tank. In order to produce the websites - which we'll note are so template-similar - HR is told to not hire any web designers or writers that are over 32 years old unless they got their degree online.

    Ya see the same quality of content all over the web. They have no clue how laughable is the extent to which they have been psychologically conditioned or trained to not critique themselves.

    It is truly astonishing.

    Their is no ethnic pattern we are permitted to observe. But have you tried to follow the assemble instructions of any product that was built overseas lately?

  • How is this news when it is decades old? Ball first came up with the Zoo Hypothesis in '73 and the notion of it as an answer to the Fermi paradox is likely older than that.

    • Exactly. I guess its slow news time over the holidays... and the recent Falcon 9 plume has brought all sorts of cranks out of the social media woodwork. (Launches from Vandenberg have for decades generated plumes if occurring after sunset or before sunrise ... I saw all the way from Palomar Mountain a Minuteman test some forty years ago. Florida residents have recorded some amazing launches from the Cape, search in Youtube.)

      The Zoo Hypothesis is the oldest explanation for the positive edge of the Fermi Paradox. These ideas have been around for some sixty years, since it became respectable for scientists to talk about the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence (thanks to Drake, Shklovsky and Sagan).

    • This article just threw cold water on the subject, in light of the amazing pentagon info from last week.

  • Unless other beings out there can twinkle their noses like Samantha Stevens and pop in and out where ever in the universe they want, this is all for naught. Distance, distance, distance.

    • There have been hundreds of thousands of UFO sightings over the last few decades alone, if even one of them was a visitor from elsewhere then yes they can pop in or out if they want to.

      • I was with a group of guys in my teens who saw a UFO when we were driving on a back road smoking some mild and wonderful 70's weed. We were near a small town airport but that didn't matter to one of us. Unbeknownst to the rest of us, he told our UFO story to the local paper. Names were also used. Mortified.

    • Exactly. We have been broadcasting radio signals for maybe 80 years max. So the aliens would have to be well within thew local range of our arm of the galaxy, and met all the other criteria such as they are listening for radio waves from our part of the galaxy, they are beings that care about space travel, and their intelligence has evolved in such a way that they build tools to monitor stuff like radio waves.
      The odds against all of this are, shall we say, astronomical.

      • Lol, advanced aliens wouldn't use radio, too primitive and slow. They'd use quantum entanglement to communicate in real time.

        We've already proven that it's real and we were all basically living in huts with candles for light just a couple of hundred years ago, what do you think we'll know in another thousand years or so?

        • Quantum entanglement doesn't allow for FTL communication. While quantum action at a distance is instantaneous, we can only collect information about it at the speed of light. Of course, "they" might have figured out some other means.

        • There is no "real time."

          And entanglement can't enable any cause to travel across a distance and effect an effect ;) faster that light.

      • 80 years?. I am almost that age, but there have been radio waves out there since the late 1800s.There have also been UFO sightings since that period of time, and maybe earlier, since ancient petrographic indicators are found in stone. If there were that advanced back then, where would they be today? Unless, of course, they killed themselves off stupidly, like we are likely to do.

    • Agreed. When we advance significantly it will make little sense to send living beings to distant worlds - unless FTL becomes possible. We'll send agents with artificial intelligence, who will not mind long voyages or radiation or other hazards. They'll report back to us as we lounge in our hot tubs safely at home. If aliens are among us they're watching via remote, not flying around in saucers or leaving footprints. If I absolutely had to bet one way or the other I'd bet not. Yet I hope that they are watching.

    • Europeans once thought the same about ''distant'' ocean travel. Small minds.
      Meanwhile, Chinese had already visited North and Central America.
      Try to catch up.

    • It's still possible that the Alcubierre drive or something like that could get us effectively faster than light by warping space. Some people think it's theoretically possible but impractical, others believe we might some day utilize it for interstellar travel. Impractical or not, though, it isn't fringe theory or fantasy. If it really is something that's doable within a timeframe of, say, one to five hundred years, another civilization could certainly be using it now.

  • The spaceX scammer needs a renewal of this crap to line its pockets. Rockets & satellites have been being launched for decades without much ado. Now all of a sudden, Ellon Musk launches a rocket that produces a spectacular light show in the sky over southern california and most of the sheep with their oohs and ahhs just think this was business as usual. No one has figured out how to land a rocket in the vertical position except Musk, although he has taken it to the next level, landing a rocket on a small floating platform in the middle of the ocean, and secret locations.
