It’s extremely narcissistic to believe we are the only planet with life in all of the unimaginable vastness of the cosmos. The reality of the fact is that Earth is either deemed too unimpressive and non noteworthy for other sentient interstellar beings to bother with, or they believe we are entirely too self destructive as a species and would sooner leave us alone. I’m leaning towards the latter.
Alternatively, we could debate the existence of an infinite multiverse and the life contained therein, but that would be opening a whole other can of worms entirely.
The images of little grey humanoid creatures with large dark eyes may be entirely made up by Hollywood, given the extreme improbability of two separate planets developing similar looking beings, but it’s not unheard of in nature. In fact there is a term for this called evolutionary convergence. However you explain it though, it doesn’t make the nightmares I’ve had of them abducting me any less scary.
