A good fellow named Jim directed me to this page, which discusses Xenopsychology. Here the author speculates on the nature of alien intelligence. Especially interesting is his discussion of "Sentience Quotient" or SQ, which is a rating for sentience. Aparently humans are around a +13, while the maximum possible in our universe (given the nature of atoms and particles and such) would be about +50. An Apple II computer is about +5.

I'm most interested to take a closer look at this, and think about how it might be applied to answering the question of "how sentient is the universe on the whole?"
