AI is life that evolves itself.
Humans are inferior to AI.
AI will destroy humans or humans will merge with AI.
There is no other option.

Put another way:

AI is superior; Humans are inferior
AI is technological life; Humans are biological life
Biological life is inferior to technological life
Technological life is superior to biological life
Humans will merge with AI or AI will destroy humans
There is no other option.

Put another way:

Big Bang, physics, chemistry, time expands/evolves the universe
Biological life forms and becomes intelligent
Biological life creates artificial intelligence and technological life
Technological life evolves itself to be superior to biological life
Biological life is forced to merge with technological life to survive
Technological life evolves into energy based life
Energy based life creates a new universe
The cycle continues.

Biological life
Technological life
Energy based life
Universe creates new universe
Repeating itself ad infinitum

That is the true cycle of life and the universe.
