If the joke here is intended to be that the robot has scientific knowledge rather than imagination:

"rend the ground with violence" attributes agency

"water the thinnest of orchids" attributes intention

"a dance of uncountable points" is fanciful. They don't really dance.

"hung under a blue star" supposes a cosmic decorator hanging things.

I leave "infinite ripples borne on invisible fields, stretching beyond human sight, journeying wherever the great first motion told them to go" as an exercise for the reader.

The robot is hanging great nets of fancy on a few wires of science. It clearly has more imagination, though perhaps no more originality, than the human.

But then what is the joke? That robots will, for some unspecified reason, be more imaginative?

Well, obviously that is not the joke then. I think it is more that the robot is more an all-round renaissance-over-man without even being a man: He is better at being a man than the man. Given that Zach knows the etymology of robot ( = worker) --- well I guess this is just more of Zach trying to push his Marxist agenda on innocent children with unsuspecting parents who think their little Johnny is merely reading safe, harmless, wholesomely patriotic comics the whole family comics. Little do they know.

Also, I'd just like to say, none of those things are unscientific. They have gone out style in most modern scientific writings; but the style on one's writing does neither break nor make the science.

It's cuter now. There's nothing else to get.

Well, also. that by giving the robot a face with emotion, it goes from a soulless machine describing its soulless thoughts in spiritual terms that as per the button wouldn't feel bad during the humanicide to something experiencing a different, more encompassing kind of wonder that presumably would feel bad and might even donate clock cycles to the Red Cross, without actually changing the dialogue.

But that's incidental to being cute.

The robot was a metaphor for the overman prolet.
