To me this seems the most likely scenario and our sad little daily life is no more than a kids ant farm, each "ant" just doing its thing and being an "ant". Although we dont live underground, we go to work. We build our structures the same, we interact with other 'ants' the same, we collect our food the same and we wage wars the same. As above, so below.

What else could describe the meaning of our sad existence here on Earth?
not sure why but the idea of being a lab rat reminds me of this episode of Rick and Morty and if you've never watched it before you'll either love it or hate it:

I like Michael Tsarian's take that there was a planet between Mars and Jupiter that was blown up in an intergalactic space war. One group in that war got marooned on Earth, and they've been working, ever since, to train and push humanity to the point where we develop the technology to mine the material and repair or rebuild their space ships so they can get the heck out of here!

Makes more sense to me than anything else I've heard
