Global Communications with the Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI) behind Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)
Two hypotheses are proposed regarding the possible ETI responsible for Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) are the Zoo hypothesis (ZH) and the Laboratory hypothesis (LH). According to the ZH, UAP reflects the existence of an intelligence that has been monitoring the Earth for some time.
According to the ZH, possibly altruistic zoo keepers are subjecting humanity to experiments designed to accelerate the pace of development of human civilization until the human species has overcome its tendency towards actions that could destroy itself and until humankind is sufficiently developed to establish contact. UAP may be the first evidence of an ETI technosignature around Earth. This class of technosignatures are presented as exogenous intelligent probes that may go beyond the ZH.
The LH fits this framework and suggests the importance of further scientific research in a wide range of categories including UAP physics, UAP patterns, UAP behavior, and the development of relations with the ETI behind UAP intelligence using possibly novel methods of communication.
We, therefore, need to address the human recognition and acknowledgment of the existence of a possible advanced ETI interacting with us around Earth, which already has begun to impact global circumstances. After recognition, it is important to research how to make contact and develop a relationship with this ETI. This requires a democratic approach that encompasses all human beings since no one government speaks for all humans on Earth. The development of communications technologies may provide the first contact within the conventions of SETI.
We use observable outcomes to support the hypothesis that ETI manifests within the framework of UAP. We explore the possibility that observations of UAP may reveal characteristics of this ETI’s technology that could be used to help human beings communicate with it.
We furthermore suggest means to address the societal impacts of the recognition and acknowledgment of ETI. We also propose aims to contribute to the scientific development of the research on UAP and ETI by focusing on observable outcomes.
