We are essentially kept in a “zoo” or “nature preserve” for some reason.

I know the reason. Human beings are being farmed. We live in a simulation of physical reality. You can’t find aliens by using simulated instruments. You can find them using your mind. I’ve had contact with many aliens, and yes they truly are much more advanced than us. I’ve even seen some of their cities and communities. They definitely don’t want us becoming aware of them. There are also good beings out there, as well.
