I struggle to get a handle on the "amount" of intelligence in something. For example, we have IQ scores for humans, but if we have a group of N humans with score X, what single human with score Y is that equivalent to? If we can't even answer this question, I don't see how we can hope to compare humans, mice, chimps, etc.
