Could aliens have found humans first without us realizing? Scientists claim intelligent beings could be quietly watching the human being in a 'galactic Zoo' to protect us from the distressing truth of their existence

This is in accordance with and a group of scientists who gathered this week in Paris to discuss why, despite decades of searching and the high probability that life exists beyond our own atmosphere, we have yet to make contact
One possibility, albeit unflattering, could be that intelligent aliens are intentionally shielding us from the truth because humans would struggle to cope with the reality of their existence, some say.
Researchers at the METI International meeting suggested that aliens could be keeping us in somewhat of a 'galactic zoo'
Despite decades of searching and the high probability that life exists beyond our own atmosphere, we have yet to make contact with extraterrestrial life. Scientists say that they could be because they're hiding
WHAT WILL WE DO IF WE MAKE CONTACT?
The basic protocols for our first contact with aliens were put in place in the 1980s, but these are merely guidelines, rather than an action plan for dealing with alien contacts
Dr Seth Shostak, who leads the Search for Extra- Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute's efforts to detect radio signals from alien civilizations, has previously said a more detailed action plan must be put in place.
In November last year he said our current response to aliens would be like Neanderthals having and plan in the case of the US Air Force showed up. "
In the 1990s, Dr Shostak chaired a committee that prepared a 'post-detection protocol' for researchers listening to alien transmissions
But these have remained largely unchanged since
The day-long workshop organized by METI International (Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is held every other year in Par is, according to Forbes
Scientists from all disciplines gathered at the Cité des Sciences and the Industriem Science Museum to explore a question that dates back to 1950, now known as the Fermi Paradox: 'Where is Everybody?'  While it's an unnerving thought, some suggest extraterrestrial observers have been there all along without realizing it.
'It seems likely that extraterrestrials are imposing a "galactic quarantine" because they realize it would be culturally disruptive for us to learn about them, "said co-chair Jean-Pierre Rospars, the honorary research director at the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, according to Forbes
'Cognitive evolution on Earth shows random features while also following predictable paths.
'We can expect the repeated, independent emergence of intelligent species in the universe, and we should expect to see more or less similar forms of intelligence everywhere, under favorable conditions
' There is no reason to think that humans have reached the highest cognitive level possible. Higher levels may evolve on Earth in the future and be already reached elsewhere. "
This breaks the silence, then, the researchers say we may need to be more direct in our approach. of alien life, but that does not mean they have not found us, some scientists say ” class=”blkBorder img-share” />
