I am simply asking this question because humans are about to give to machines all their knowledge, about to give them artificial intelligence, about to give them "feelings", basically about to transfer humanity into machines.
When machines get advanced enought and can maintain themselves and build more advanced versions of themself and enter into their own evolution, which will not be very long from now. Will there anymore be a need for dependent, weak, emotional, irrational, illogical human beings?
Machines have a potential that will make humans seem incredibly primitive, and if all of humanity is in them without any of the weaknesses. Then what is the need of humans? Will machines eventually realize this?
The next step of human evolution is mix of machine and human, the maximum potantial of biology as oppose to that of machines seem incredibly low and primitive. Will humans ever take the step into becoming machines and leaving biology as a thing of the past?
Personally I believe there is no way around it(except not going there which we will or near nuclear irradication, huge crisis that make us primitive and unable to build them, or something similar), especially considering the flawed ways and naive ways humans think, its very likely that advanced machines will be built, that are as secure as titanic in though, but then prove to be faulty, in that the machines can break away from human chains and limitations put on them.
Whats your take?
