There is also the question of what intelligence is, and how to measure it, 
to further confuse things. I imagine that if we adopt a pragmatic view of 
getting things done, an AI with connected robots is only limited by the 
laws of physics and available raw material.

But I was thinking more about our general intelligence and something which 
we would think of as a being.

If unhappy and unstable high IQ people are a myth, is it also a myth that 
high IQ couples have less children?
