I believevthis to be the more logical scenario. And I believe indifference is the word, as it coincides with the abduction phenomena and hybridization program. Hence the cover up on a world wide scale. Because our government's are powerless to stop it. Very well are complicit with the Alien agenda, but its neither a good or bad scenario. We just so happen to be lower on the totem. And that does not bode well with many. Im over it. ITS OK its been going on for eons anyway. At least they return the subject intact usually.
Some aliens might just be very curious explorers. Scientific minds, with zero empathy for what is alien to them.
Wanting to study us, the way people studied animals decades ago, with the weird belief that we don't feel pain, or that it doesn't matter if we do.
It is entirely possible that another type of being evolved on this planet and reached levels of civilisation we can't even start to imagine. They may have left the planet a long time ago. We would have no memories of them, as our species probably would not even have existed in their days. And their buildings, machines, cities and other creations we fail to understand may all have eroded away. We have this crazy belief that "older civilisations" would leave traces - but maybe they simply did not fancy or see the need for huge monuments or stone buildings. Look at us: if our species would leave the planet (or be extinguished, whatever), I guess a few hundred thousands of years would suffice to erase any trace of us.
Habitable worlds are plentiful. Inhabited worlds, probably not so much. If simply looking for resources it is unlikely we'd be invaded.
