I would like to discuss the old adage that aliens thousands or millions of years ahead of us in technology would be similar to us vs ants.
My stance is that this idea is not tenable, while technology might advance to give the users of that technology almost god like powers the individuals would still be more or less equal to us as individuals.
If we could go back in time 100,000 years and take a human child or maybe even a neanderthal child and raise it in the modern era it would have the same intelligence more or less as a modern human.
In fact if you brought back an adult from that time period it should be possible to educate him or her enough so that they understood that the things we can do are products of technology and not magic.
It stands to reason that beings with advanced technology would have no evolutionary pressure to become super intelligent but would like us rely on their technology.
In fact there is a school of thought that asserts that humans are individually becoming less intelligent on average than we were when man had to be a jack of all trades and figure out how to do things either by being told by a peer or figuring it out himself.
We stand on the shoulders of giants, we arguably have the entire knowledge of humanity at our finger tips, no extra intelligence needed and the suggestion that brain size is decreasing in modern humans instead of enlarging or remaining the same could lend some credence to this.
