Imagine yourself, perceiving a plant, say a tree - its incredibly slow metabolic rate and predictable "behaviour" i.e growth. Also in some sense the plant is defenceless against your whim, whatever it may be - to cut it down, burn it, or eat (parts of) it. Better still imagine a stone - its practically unchanging crystal structure, and unique combination of minerals shaped by geological processes over billions of years. Again - the stone is a passive, and for all practical purposes (by definition!), a lifeless object. Now imagine, that a super-intelligent being would perceive YOU in a manner analogous to your perception of that tree, or rock.
In the time that you would take one breath, it would seem to such a being that eons have passed during which its leaps and strides of insight would dwarf the totality of our (human) current intellectual achievements.
