Interesting Conjecture about Advanced Intelligences
How will advanced intelligences, either artificial or alien, treat sapients below them on the evolutionary scale?

J. Storrs Hall suggests that such intelligences will be risk-takers and they will treat sapient risk-takers with consideration as primitive kindred.

But if the sapients have used their intelligence to construct a static, risk-averse society, they will be treated as uncivilized, even as inanimate.
