The prospect of finding intelligent life outside of the planet has intrigued humanity since the beginning of recorded history. There have been multiple scientific attempts in attracting and locating alien life forms over the past few years. Despite the advances in science and technology, there has yet to be substantial evidence that alien life exists in the vastness of the universe.

But what if, the search is moot and useless because alien life is present in all aspects of the physical world -- from dark matter to gravity. According to a Columbia University astrophysicist, this theory might explain not only why aliens have yet to contact humans but also the majority of the mysteries of the cosmos.

In a recently published article in science journal Nautilus as reported by Fox News, Professor Caleb Scharf explains that predecessors of human life might have developed hyper-advanced technology enough to turn themselves into living machines that can affect the physical world. He postulates that humanity has not made contact with advanced alien life forms because it already all around.

"Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn't just external. Perhaps it's already all around. It is embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself. "In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations" quipped Scharf in his controversial article.

Scharf is not the first astrophysicist that tries to explain why there has yet to be evidence of alien life. In 2011, Duncan H. Forgan, from the University of St. Andrews, put forward what he called the "Zoo hypothesis." Forgan's "Zoo hypothesis" explains that humanity has yet to detect intelligent non-human life forms because these aliens are deliberately preventing the best of tools from locating them. This hypothesis assumes that aliens refrain from interfering with human development in order to let natural evolution take place.
