I can't watch your video right now, but since AI doesn't exist yet, I don't think your idea of evolution towards integrating with something that isn't there works. It is an interesting thought though.
I think it's more likely that these people have emotional and/or other psychological issues and are pushing their ideology on their children in an attempt to justify/validate their psychosis/choices.
At the peak population, most mice spent every living second in the company of hundreds of other mice. They gathered in the main squares, waiting to be fed and occasionally attacking each other. Few females carried pregnancies to term, and the ones that did seemed to simply forget about their babies. They'd move half their litter away from danger and forget the rest. Sometimes they'd drop and abandon a baby while they were carrying it.
The few secluded spaces housed a population Calhoun called, "the beautiful ones." Generally guarded by one male, the females—and few males—inside the space didn't breed or fight or do anything but eat and groom and sleep. When the population started declining the beautiful ones were spared from violence and death, but had completely lost touch with social behaviors, including having sex or caring for their young.

It's a fun theory to think about...
However, I'm afraid it is just mental illness being seized upon by a powerful political faction to promote as a new religion so that they can consolidate power and control over others. So basically, meet the new boss same as the old boss. The key difference between the old guard and the new being that the old religions were all about "go forth and multiply" whereas the new religion is about de-population and population control. That is the only real meaningful difference between the the old and the new cult. The rest is just a game of musical chairs set to cacophonous nonsense.
