I know -- Newt frequently reminds me she is far more intelligent than
humans.  The only thing she finds more offensive is when humans
"newtomorphize" themselves, implying that they're as intelligent as Newtons.
You do NOT want to be around when she catches someone doing that!

In point of fact, I simply was "newtologizing" her -- expressing my
knowledge of her nature as a Newton.   In any case, I was just describing
the kind of nightmares I might have if I'm not reassured quickly.
