But even amongst different plain ol' ordinary humans, there are diffrent interests. To a biochemist, bacteria slurping up glucose *is* probably quite interesting.
How can you say that some SI would *not* be interested in a particular subject?
We might not be the most dazzling thing in the universe, but with all their brainpower, maybe there are many fields SI's would look at (including "boring" hominids).
