I think if the intelligence would want only TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING,
it's morality will grow with the understanding acquired, and we won't
have a problem of morality at all. Trying to understand everything, it
will definitely at some point of awareness try to understand "What is
good and what is bad".
