Could aliens have found humans first without us noticing? Scientists claim that intelligent beings can quietly observe humanity in a "galactic zoo" to protect us from the tormenting truth of their existence. 19659002 This week, researchers gathered for the METI International Convention in Paris
We may not have found evidence of extraterrestrial life yet, but that does not mean we did not find it.
This is a group of scientists gathered in Paris this week to discuss why, despite decades of research and the high probability that life exists outside of our own atmosphere, we still do not need to have contact.
It could be a possibility, if not flattering Some people say that intelligent aliens purposely protect us from the truth because people have difficulty coping with the reality of their existence.
Researchers at the METI International meeting suggested that aliens could keep us in a "galactic zoo". They just have to watch us without revealing themselves so as not to accelerate the cultural confusion on Earth.
Despite decades of searching and the high likelihood that life exists outside of our own atmosphere, we still need to make contact with extraterrestrial life. Scientists say it may be because they are hiding
WHAT WE DO IF WE CONTACT?
Basic protocols for our first contact with foreigners were introduced in the 1980s, but these are merely guidelines and not an action plan for dealing with foreigners.
Dr. Seth Shostak, who sought the Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute to detect radio signals from alien civilizations, said earlier that a more detailed action plan must come into effect.
Last November, he said our current response to foreigners would be like the Neanderthals' plan in the event that the US Air Force has surfaced. "
In the 1990s, Dr. Shostak led a committee that prepared a" post-detection protocol "for researchers waiting for alien transmissions.
However, these have remained largely unchanged since then and are considered guidelines and not as a definite plan for dealing with foreign contacts.
The METI International (Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Day Workshop takes place every two years in Par Laut Forbes
and scholars of all disciplines gathered at the Cité des Sciences et de l & # 39; Industriem, to explore a 1950 issue known as the Fermi paradox: "Where are all?"  While this is an irritating thought, some suggest extraterrestrial observers have always been been there without us noticing.
"Aliens seem to impose a" Galactic Quarantine "because they are detecting It would be culturally disturbing to learn about them, "said co-chair Jean-Pierre Rospars, honorary research director at the National Institute for Research Agronomique, according to Forbes.
"Cognitive evolution on Earth exhibits random traits, also following predictable paths.
" We can expect the repeated, independent emergence of intelligent species in the universe, and we should expect that under favorable conditions everywhere find more or less similar forms of intelligence. "
" There is no reason to believe that people believe this reached the highest cognitive level. Higher levels could evolve on Earth in the future and be reached elsewhere. "
To break the silence, the researchers say that we may need to be more direct in our approach.
Humanity may not have found evidence of an extraterrestrial life, but that does not mean that they have not found us, some scientists say.
Douglas Vakoch, president of METI, compares this to a zebra in a zoo that suddenly pops up to look you in the eye and primes out with the hoof.
Such an extreme and unexpected call would certainly evoke a reaction from the observer.
"Maybe aliens are watching people on Earth, the way we watch animals in a zoo," Vakoch said, according to Forbes. "How can we get the galactic keepers to show themselves?"
For people using a scientific approach, this call could be radio signal transmissions to nearby stars.
It has been tried many times, back to the early 1970s, when scientists first beamed a deliberate message into space with the Arecibo Radio Telescope in Puerto Rico. But it seems we just have to keep trying.
