Whats not very extropian? Being god's pet or giving it the finger? The Amish
aren't extropians, either, you might recall. Note the native americans preferred
the finger route when faced with the numbers and technology of the white man, by
and large. "Not going quietly into this good night" is an extropian sentiment.
Living forever is not the only extropian principle. Living forever, at the price
of eternal slavery, is not an acceptable option.
