The human being is so organized that he wants to know all the answers, but concerning the topic of UFOs and the actual influence of aliens on the Earth and the life living on it, including people according to former CIA employee Luis Elizondo – “Disclosure of information about extraterrestrials on Earth people will not be happy.
What if Earth is a zoo and we are the animals in it? Yes, we consider ourselves an intelligent and advanced civilization, but technically speaking, zoo keepers are part of the zoo.
The Lord God formed out of the earth all the animals of the field and all the birds of the sky, and brought them to man to see what he would name them, and that as man shall name every living soul, so shall its name be.
And the man named all the cattle and the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field; but there was no helper like him for the man.
And the Lord God put the man to a sound sleep; and when he was asleep, he took one of his ribs, and covered that place with flesh.
And the Lord God made a wife out of the rib taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
And the man said, Behold, this is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called a wife, for she is taken from her husband.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and the two shall be one flesh.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and possess it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth (Genesis ).
Furthermore, as we evolve as a species, we realize more and more every day the value of every animal, every intelligence, every creature.
The same trajectory of enlightenment that a much more advanced species/civilization/culture is likely to follow will extrapolate much, much further.
Benevolence and altruism are at the pinnacle of that enlightenment, albeit with some consideration for wildlife conservation.
Earth is zoo territory. We may still be the zoo keepers, but our alien owners rule over us, essentially in charge of developing the zoo and keeping it viable for its inhabitants, along with a myriad of other planets with zoo civilizations.
It is likely that we won’t need these “zoo managers” after we become much more enlightened over many generations, but we still have a long way to go to begin our own enlightenment (philosophical/educational/cultural/technological/epistemological) before religion becomes a thing of the past.
Religion serves as a scheme of life, an outline of life for those to whom these abstract and hard-to-understand concepts of existence in the cosmos are not to their liking and minds. Ordinary people are satisfied with religion (as it should be for the people we were born to be).
It answers the most difficult questions with parables, stories, dogma, and orthodoxy, making it rule-based and analogous to human life. It is clear, full of imagery, metaphors, and answers many of the everyday problems of man as an intermediate step between primate and angel.
As we rise ever higher in our quest, our collective and individual achievements, we will begin to strive for an enlightenment that will free us from the need and desire for more earthly religiosity, and instead we will find our place in the vast cosmos in the community of intelligent civilizations.
