I asked in a different thread:
What if a being was signifigantly more intelligent, compare a pet fish 
to ourselves for contrast.
The fish probably does not really understand very well, what we are, it 
probably thinks we are another fish.
Therefor if "godlike" beings existed (I did not say creator or anything 
like the biblical god, just very advanced beings.) would we realize that 
they were there or would we just look "through" them and see other 
humans?(because we may not be able to accept what they really are.)
