I do think ETs observe our planet, but not for any zoo/entertainment purposes. ETs taking trips here risk their lives. With our governments denying
their existence, that must mean that cover-up, one that likely includes extreme violence towards visiting ETs is in operation. It would be like
travelling to Iraq to go on vacation with the current reality that you could be kidnapped or killed at any moment. Would anybody do that?
Scientific and defensive reasons I suspect are much more key to their visits here. Humanity's massive explosion in population from breaking through
technological barriers must be getting already advanced extraterrestrials quite excited over watching such a rapidly evolving (yet still slightly
primitive) race moving towards their own advanced civilizations. Our own sicentists would be buzzing with excitement if suddenly they witnessed a
species of animals on our planet advance themselves in a manner similar to ours. If a chimpanzee discovered the wheel or fire and created a primitive
civilization around it, our scientists would be enthralled. I'd say the effect is similar, but on a grander scale to ETs observing us.
Our civilization is also still quite violent and I suspect they're equally concerned that humanity's rapid ascension may bring with it a new threat
to their own home planets. Plus I'm sure that their interest in us is seeing us survive, and not killing ourselves and our planet so that we can be
studied further. So watching us for defensive purposes is perhaps an even greater reason for their trips here.
