I don't think that training dogs is the same thing as "taking over their minds".

But you overall point about the relative dumbness of humans (versus SI) and
the relative equality of humans (as compared to an SI) is a good one. That's
why I think that Eliezar's idea of us playing a game of "let me out of the box"
isn't a very useful or fair thing to attempt. Eliezar is _essentially equal_ to
me (from the viewpoint of an SI), even if he's a lot smarter than me.
