Here is a lecture by Rudolf Steiner on the Luciferic Current and the Ahrimanic Current and the differences twixt the two. The technologies arising are certainly of the dark Ahrimanic current. Seeming enlightening, but darkly enslaving. This lecture by Steiner should serve as a guide of understanding the forces at play behind the seeming human progression especially as concerns technology. I hope this aids you in your quest for Realization of Selbst.
