===Basic Machines and the Cymeks===
 
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===
 
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.

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.

Thinking Machines

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

Conceptual Thinking Machines Edit

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.

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.
