It depends on the level of intelligence. If it is high enough, it will
have a very detailed model of your environment. It could know (and be
able to manipulate) the state of every neuron and synapse through
simulation, direct observation, or both. If it is at a moderate level
(like humans are to animals), we should expect it to achieve these godlike
powers very quickly (on our time scale) through recursive self
