Serial psychos are said to be unusually intelligent. Also, it seems
the greater the gap in intelligence, the less value the thing on the
high end ascribes the things on the low end. for example, rank in
order of value/respect: bacterium, cockroach, toad, mouse, dog,
monkey, human. Many humans place the value cutoff at the human line.

Where will an AI draw that line, hmm..?
