Humans are kept complacent and happy, ala the humans in Wall-E; except for those who resist the AI's control. Rejecting most advanced technology, these rebels have instead turned to using magic to fight the technology.

The "High Lord" for this cosm is actually a computer virus: at one point in the past someone tried to destroy the darkness device (with advanced technology). Instead of being actually destroyed, the device instead was loaded into the internet (or similar network service).

That is very close to my first idea. High Magic and Tech with savagely low Social is such a tough combo to make sense of that I figured that somehow all the magical and/or technological stuff might stunt social development. Having everyone’s needs met while simultaneously restricting freedom is a good way to go about it. Though I had the idea of a magically-augmented AI in charge.
