I thought it was literally "Now it meets its own people". I figured it might be a robot or some other thing.

Literally, it means “Now it affects the own people.”, where “the” refers to an unspecified person or persons. It can't be translated directly into English, because in English “own” has to take a possessive pronoun, not an article.
