The concept for the Botany Ball is not a serious one. Imagine an unoccupied spacecraft from another planet in another galaxy coming to Earth and collecting a few samples of life here. The craft returns to its planet and they attempt to create a simulation of Earth using the collected samples.
The end result is presented as some sort of attraction in a Disneyland-like setting. Unfortunately, with limited samples, the simulated planet is laughingly inadequate and inaccurate.
We tend to envision visitors from other planets as super-brained all-knowing beings. However, they could be these well-meaning, but slightly inept creatures just like us.
