Suppose a race of men (and womyn) conclude by means of balanced logic and
emotion that they are fatally flawed, and design a successor race to
embody a more superlative sentience.
The flawless and immortal Robo sapiens^3 (super-super-sapiens) that emerge
as the successor race might conclude by means of hyper-cognitive
perception that they were... obsolete!
Unless, of course, Moore's Law does not apply to Great Brains.
