I'm confused by this. The program just runs a bunch of calculations, it does less creepy things than playing a computer game (a program that tries to immerse you psychologically in another world, the rules of which are decided by geeks).
My email program 'learns' what I consider spam and what I want to read. It gets to decide what I read and when. THAT'S creepy.
I always turn the computer off when I am not using it, the idea of letting it be on the net full time is creepy.
