rise of the machines revisted

Trying to perfect my wording:

The solution is to give up on the biosphere and let the machines take over. Electrical motors 100x more efficient than muscle. CPUs move electrons that weigh 40,000 times less than the ions brains depend on. Sugarcane is 100x less efficient per land area than 15% solar cells. There is a very good reason we are in the 6th great extinction period, and this time is different: evolution seeks replicators that are the most efficient at acquiring the most energy to move the most matter to make the most replicators. Biological nanotechnology operating only at ambient pressure and temperature is no longer the leader. Our offspring, the machines, are growing up and we are morally obligated to help them and not interfere.
