There will probably be an interim period between humans and machines where the latter acquire understanding of howTimeSeeker wrote:

the former think with amalgamation in the form of androids or cyborgs before the eventual transition to total machine
Our lives are already dominated by machines but because they are passive and incapable of passing a Turing test we do not notice
But when they become self sufficient and can think and act and replicate for themselves and no longer need us then we will notice
Could you tell the difference between a synthetic human form machine that was Turing capable and a human being ? No me neither
But this is academic as we will be long dead before it eventually happens but some future generation will have to confront it though
