"Siene: "Our culture prizes things like reason, making good decisions, 
pride in humanity. Others don't. The two kinds of culture aren't the 
and they aren't equally valuable. One of them is abhorrent."

Pride in humanity is similar to god worship. Humans kill each other out 
of greed and ignorance and proud of it. What other specie is spared of 
pride and irrationality/ignorance?

Artificial intelligence can be spared of irrationality and pride but it 
is not human. What AI could make us both humane and rational? Maybe 
that's a wrong question.
