The Computer and the Incarnation Ahriman

Rudolf Steiner Archive Document

RelArtics Section

The computer is transforming our society and our way of life. At first confined to the central offices of large corporations, scientific research institutions, and government agencies, computers are finding widespread application in automobiles, appliances, and small businesses. Many people have grown concerned about the changes resulting from the spread of computers. While computers give us welcome relief from drudgery, they have other effects which we do not welcome. The computer is special because of its relation to the spiritual being here called Ahriman. In the latter parts of this book, Mr. Black attempts to make clear the exact nature of the relation between the computer and the being Ahriman.

The computer is transforming our society and our way of life. At first confined to the central offices of large corporations, scientific research institutions, and government agencies, computers are finding widespread application in automobiles, appliances, and small businesses.

Many people have grown concerned about the changes resulting from the spread of computers. While computers give us welcome relief from drudgery, they have other effects which we do not welcome.

The computer is special because of its relation to the spiritual being here called “Ahriman.” In the latter parts of this book, Mr. Black attempts to make clear the exact nature of the relation between the computer and the being Ahriman.

A Short Bio for
David B. Black

David B. Black started programming in high school, had written software for oil industry optimization and early ARPAnet operation by the time he graduated from Harvard in 1972, then went on to write software in multiple industries while studying the works of Rudolf Steiner and participating in Anthroposophical activities. This 1981 book is the result of his years of experiencing computers from the “inside,” along with his esoteric, historical and mathematical studies. In the 1990's he started in venture capital and now concentrates on health care and financial technology investments.
