Philosophy Friday: Intelligence

Sola dosis facit venenum; the dose makes the poison. Although humans need water to survive, too much H2o results in water intoxication and death. Even oxygen in too pure a form culminates in toxicity. So why do we assume the same is not true with intelligence? 

Looking at our world, do you see evidence of the toxicity of intelligence?

Maybe Hiroshima comes to mind?

Or does toxicity of intelligence sound like crazy talk?

Could toxicity of intelligence explain why we have not found aliens?

Should we give the possible toxicity of intelligence serious consideration before building a Super Artificial Intelligence?

Your thoughts?
