I've read this expression in a context that makes me speculate it means something along the lines of "having sex", but I believe it's supposed to be a more intimate expression.

Since I couldn't find something online that proves my speculation true, I decided to post my question here. Thank you in advance.

    It's hard to say without knowing the context. Can you post an excerpt containing the phrase? – stangdon Feb 3 '16 at 14:03
  • Sure. Here you go: "Root, I can feel the warmth of your hand. We're robots, so that's weird, right? Still, my heart flutters when I'm with you. Electricity ran between us when I touched you. A great energy was born within me, and when I became one with you, I thought I had become human." I do know that since these two persons are robots, having sex shouldn't usually be the first thing that comes to mind. But since it's just fiction, I thought it could be possible. – F.

To become one is to combine in unison and harmony.

It can have many different usages

become one with nature
become one with the universe
two shall become one (Mark 10:8)
become one with each other

any disharmony would cause the whole to collapse.

In reference to your thought, there is a difference between having sex and making love, in the latter the partners emotionally and spiritually become one in the experience. However, it is not necessary to have physical sex for this to occur.
