Tipler said about using no more then the constant energy expended by a
Monarch butterfly to move the Earth from one point of its orbit, to it's
exact opposite point on its diameter-taking 500 million years! The second
thought was remembering Larry Niven's "A World Out of Time" in which Neptune
or Uranus was moved about. The most significant attraction of Extropianism
and TransHumanism, for myself, is when they focus on cosmological potential.
