For the zoo hypothesis to be true ET would have to somehow circumvent the
Second Law Of Thermodynamics (where does the waste heat from ET's
civilization go and why can't we find it?) and they go to the trouble of
performing this superhuman majical task for the sole purpose of keeping ape
descendants on a small planet ignorant of their surroundings.  This all
seems somewhat unlikely to me.
