I’ve read many ideas relating to life on another planet, but more humorous than academic. Since taking this course I’m glad I was able to come across more logical solutions as to why humans have yet to find evidence of live in the universe. I’m no subject matter expert but I would have to agree with the “Rare Earth” hypothesis simply because our milky way for starters is too big. There are many earth like planets that were discovered but we still don’t have the technology to make advances know how life could be formed on a planet other than earth assumptions.

The Zoo Hypothesis seems the most likely scenario to me. I think if there are aliens or some other form of intelligent life out there they probably are skeptical to interact. Maybe they are more advanced than us or maybe they are just scared. I think some UFO sightings are possibly real and that could be their way of seeing how we react. Maybe they dont think we are ready yet to know. I think us living in a stimulation is by far the most ridiculous theory. There is way too many variables for that to be realistic. The other theories could be possible especially the one that says that aliens are broadcasting but we dont know how to listen.
