I have an impression that Rudolf Steiner has stated that all
machines, so to include computers, are "Ahrimanic".  Meaning, if
I understand his dogma at all, that machines and their use is
drawing spirit more and more to materia.

And what has happened? People use most of their intellectual and
spiritual capacity to enhance their material lives.  Now we are
even giving some of our thinking processes to the computers e.g.
arithmethics.  Peace.  aki.
