This discussion takes place in the context of the acceptance of Establishment Big Bang Cosmology ("Big Bang"), but not on the acceptance of the Rebel Cosmological Counter Context ("Little Bang").
With that out of the way, note that I have discussed the subject and do conclude that our cosmological models indicate that machine forms axiomatically came before biotic forms.
That conclusion was based upon the premise that elements are machine forms rather than being biotic forms.
Elements came "soon" after the Big Bang, beginning during a period of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN), according to current cosmological models.
Both simple and complex elements, and the molecules that result from Chemical Bonds between elements, are machine forms in the raw.
They formed the planets, stars, and galaxies which are more of the same (machine forms) only much greater in size, and they have more moving parts.
This machine form largess happened later on in the Big Bang timing sequence.
The biotic forms came much later, after planets had been formed, and after certain conditions arose on certain planets, according to the Big Bang models.
There you have it: Robots, which are machines with no biotic components, came before Cyborgs which have biotic components (Accord).
