The term '''''Thinking Machines''''' referred to both actual beings and a general concept, both of which had a profound impact on the development of [[human]]ity over the span of many millennia.

===Basic Machines and the Cymeks===

{{XD|The first Thinking Machines were created by humans of the [[Old Empire]] in 5,360 B.G/6,041 A.D to do everyday tasks for humans.

The next type of thinking machines that arose were when the original [[Titan]]s, decided to have their brain separated from the "meat" of their body, and their body discarded. The thinking organ was then placed inside [[electrafluid]] in a near impenetrable [[brain canister]], and connectred to the casing of the canister through [[thoughtrodes]]. Beings that had this procedure performed on them were called [[cymeks]]. The canister was then placed in powerful walker bodies, or flying starship bodies, that each individual cymek could travel through instellar space in.
  +
  +
Chief among the cymeks were [[Agamemnon]], who was the first to have the procedure done; as well as his lover, [[Juno]]. Other Titans to have the procedure was [[Dante]] and the fleshly prince [[Xerxes]]. After a few hundred years, Xerxes left too much of the governance of his star system to his computer intelliegnce, which developed independent thought of its' own, and called itself [[Omnius]], a powerful computer [[Artificial Intelligence|AI]].}}

===Omnius and the Metal Based Thinking Machines===

{{XD|Immediately, Xerxes and the other Titans attempted to shut the virulent program down, but it was to no avail, this new kind of thinking machine rose up during the [[Time of Titans]] and took control of many inhabited worlds. Omnius who was also known as the Evermind, quickly established an intergalactic empire. This intergalactic empire engaged in a protracted war of attrition with the remaining free humans, who called themselves the [[League of Nobles]]. The later stages of the war saw an escalation in tensions that were dubbed the ''[[Butlerian Jihad]]''. The Jihad ended with the defeat of the thinking machines at the hands of the free humans during the [[Battle of Corrin]].

During the time of the Butlerian Jihad Omnius controlled most thinking machines with a few exceptions. The most notable of these were [[Erasmus]], who killed [[Serena Butler|Serena Butler's]] infant son while she was his slave; and [[Chirok]], a reprogrammed combat robot used by [[Ginaz]] for training of League forces.}}

Following the rise of the actual thinking machines, and the physical and psychological damage they inflicted on the free humans, the very concept of a sentient machine became abhorrent to humanity and they were obliterated by the [[Butlerian Jihad]].

Following the rise of the actual thinking machines, and the physical and psychological damage they inflicted on the free humans, the very concept of a sentient machine became abhorrent to humanity.
   
Animosity against seemingly intelligent machines often escalated into outright hysteria, and resulted in a widespread hatred of mechanical objects. This hatred lasted through the ages thanks to rigid cultural restrictions, a good example of which was the [[Orange Catholic Bible]]'s supreme commandment: ''Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind.''

== Unity with Man-Kind ==
  +
Although Thinking Machines continued to be mankind's greatest enemy in the span of over fifteen thousand years, they eventually did achieve an understanding and a type of unity with the rise of the Ultimate [[Kwisatz Haderach]], [[Duncan Idaho]].

Idaho was able to merge with and accept the [[Evermind]] controls from the Erasmus before Erasmus died, which enabled him to direct the entire Thinking Machine Empire during the time of the [[Kralizec]], and for hundreds of years afterwards.
