If AI takes over the world, how could it create and maintain its hardware, its power supply and everything else that humans currently provide?
An unaligned AI would not eliminate humans until it had replacements for the manual labor they provide to maintain civilization (e.g. a more advanced version of Tesla's Optimus). Until that point, it might settle for technologically and socially manipulating humans.
