We will do genetic experimentation, and A.I. because both are very
important/valuble.  In both cases we will try to be carefull and will make
mistakes.  Thats just life.  Trying to put some wall that you can only make
stupid A.I.s (assuming we had some way to control that) would be clumbsy and
impractical.  Probably as dangerous as a hostile hi I.Q. A.I..

Humans are a very adaptable species.  We will probably be worth trading with.
 If not we have no obvious point of friction, so an intelegent A.I. species
that didn't like us, would just leave.  (Thou a stupid one might try world

Are you this paranoid about aliens?  How would you deal with a hyper evolved
E.T.?  If you don't think we'ld be able to deal with domestic aliens of our
own creation, how can we deal with ultra-E.T.s?

Ready?  I suppose we could just CAT scan in someones brain and have it
emulate it.

You forget.  It isn't a physical creature, it is a data construct.  A
'virtual reality' would be very alien to it.  It would probably bypass it to
the more natural binary data space.  Our physical world of time and space
could seem very alien.  Other concepts, like death, have caused some
confusion for advanced A.I. prototypes.
