Zoo theory:  aliens may know we’re here, but not want to disturb us. From Newsweek, “Where Are All the Aliens? Zoo Theory Has Creepy Explanation for Why We Haven’t Made Contact Yet”

One popular theory to explain why aliens have not made open contact with humans is the “Zoo Theory.” John A. Ball, an MIT radio astronomer, proposed the theory in 1973, suggesting that aliens may purposely be avoiding contact with humans so they don’t interfere with our activity, similar to zookeepers at a zoo or nature preserve, Science Alert reported.

“ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) may be discreetly and inconspicuously watching us but not dabbling,” Ball wrote in his paper on the subject.

According to this theory, we are too unevolved and uncivilized to be a threat or burden to alien life, but rather than interfere with our natural evolution, they monitor us from afar. Of course, they aren’t completely perfect in their effort to stay out of human affairs, which is why we have several thousand alleged sightings each year.

  1. Glad to see the Cinema Sins folks getting some love here.

    FWIW, their “Everything Wrong With…” franchise is not intended as serious criticism of movies. They aren’t adult jerks living in their parent’s basement. They just play nitpicking jerks on the podcast.

    For their serious thoughts on movies, be sure to listen to their Sincast podcast.

    Regards,

  2. Concerning the “Zoo Theory”: It’s almost as if non-interference was not just a directive for the aliens, but the prime one.
