Scientists Say That Aliens Are Looking at Us Like “Animals in A Zoo”

The Earth serves as the galactic equivalent of a zoo, suggested European researchers at a recent conference on alien life. They believed that aliens have been keeping our planet under observation and quarantine to avoid causing panic among the human population who are not ready to make first contact with extraterrestrial beings.
Many studies indicate that other forms of life likely exist in other planets. Some propose that aliens might be smart enough to communicate with humans and advanced enough to travel between stars.
However, decades of searching for any signs of extraterrestrial life have turned up nothing. Humans have yet to (officially) find any form of alien life out there, much less intelligent life.
Therefore, researchers from Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence International (METI International) considered that intelligent aliens have already known about the existence of Earth and the human race. However, the extraterrestrials have chosen to conceal their presence from humans because they believe that we were unprepared for the reality of their existence.
In their theory, the aliens do not wish to disrupt the existing human culture and society, so they have been treating Earth like a zoo or wildlife research center where they might observe humans, but never interfere until the latter is ready for first contact. (Related: Alien life may exist in Jupiter’s moon Europa and other frozen worlds.)
Intelligent extraterrestrials might be observing humans in secret
Every two years, METI International holds a conference in Paris, France. The workshop attracts researchers from around the world who want to find the answer to the long-standing question posed by famed researcher Enrico Fermi in the 1950s about the apparent absence of alien life in the galaxy or even the universe.
The 2019 workshop took place at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industriem science museum. Several attending researchers brought up the idea that intelligent aliens might be aware of humans but were keeping us in the dark for as long as possible.
“It seems likely that extraterrestrials are imposing a ‘galactic quarantine’ because they realize it would be culturally disruptive for us to learn about them,” suggested Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA) researcher Jean-Pierre Rospars, one of the two chairpersons of METI International.
Rospars and other researchers noted that intelligent life on Earth took predictable paths of evolution with the occasional randomly developed feature. Similarly, intelligent species might have repeatedly appeared throughout the universe independent of each other.
As such, researchers expected that intelligent aliens would resemble humans, especially if the conditions for the development of life on exoplanets resembled those on Earth.
If aliens are much smarter than humans, we have to persuade them that we’re intelligent enough
However, Rospars added that modern-day humans might not have attained the highest possible level of intelligence. At the same time, extraterrestrials might have already gotten much smarter than us to the point that they consider human scientific and technological achievements to be primitive in comparison to theirs.
To persuade the aliens that humans are intelligent and ready for them, we might need to take more drastic measures. American researcher and METI president Douglas Vakoch used the example of an animal in the zoo that deliberately attracts the attention of its handlers before doing something that zookeepers recognize as a sign of human-level intelligence.
“Perhaps extraterrestrial are watching humans on Earth, much like we watch animals in a zoo,” Vakoch said. “How can we get the galactic zookeepers to reveal themselves?”
Humans will also need the right protocols for the first contact with alien life. Researchers at the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute and other academies call for a proper action plan instead of the existing “guidelines.”

I would like to point some clues. Planet Earth its a Living Library, that has been cultivated and maintained by various types of beings. Ones might say ETs see us as a Zoo, but that sounds like a pejorative way of looking at it.
As Above, as Bellow.
Just as there humans going into a forest to hunt animals, there are ETs that hunt humans as if we were animals. If you think that humans explores and exploit humans (with slavery), other beings find it absurd and look at us as a very ignorant race to "exploit and explore". If a human comes alone close to a (wild) wolf pack, the wolves are likely to kill him. Similarly, most ETs are afraid of humans, so they use anesthetics to get closer, just as a vet does to trait animals.
There are also pets, purebred exemplars, which are very well treated by their owners. There are those who render services to humans, such as horse and elephant.
So to say that we are a Zoo even makes sense, but thinking like that can lead to a very mental limitation, because the Situation is much much much more complex than just that.
From all angles, the truth is always the same.
Even in the worst world lie, have a few of truth.

I appreciate your comments. I agree with most of what you are saying. I happen to agree with Mike Adams of Natural News.com when he states that humans when compared to other advanced civilizations in the cosmos have no value at all. We haven't accomplished anything of any significance.
We humans can blow things up. Like Mike Adams states it doesn't take a great deal of intelligence to blow things up! For example it has been estimated their has been 2000 test detonations of nuclear weapons on this planet. This is completely absurd to think there has to be that many nuclear detonations to see if you have gotten it right! In my opinion this is sheer stupidity. I am sure advanced ET's realize this if they reason like us or not.
The ET's would like to keep us in a Zoo. For reasons stated by late Stanton Friedman; "the main reason is that they do not want humans to export our particular brand of civilization which is “tribal warfare” throughout the cosmos."
Currently the human species is at a very critical crossroad. We humans do not have a good history of doing the right thing and time is running out very fast. Why would any advanced ET help us when our entire history has been replete self destructive actions.

Very interesting points of views!
My own experience about aliens made feel like a "cow", I felt as stupid as we consider a cow...(even if I think that every animal has his own intelligence). I felt as an animal who is inferior in the eyes of aliens. All ETs think we are very very far from them.
I have to say that we always speak about ETs like : "what do they want " etc...but the problem is as complicated as if you would try to understand what a human being can think, and they are so many different human beings!
So there are ETs observing us, others who don't care about us, others good ETs trying to help us secretly, but there are also the bad ones who abduct us...so we can't speak about "ETs" without thinking there are different alien races and so many different purposes. Maybe we should wonder who are the ones who are evil for us, and who are the good ones for us
