This was probably everyones first consideration. I quickly changed it to "Interactive Optimism" as my favorite. "Interactive Optimism" stresses the role one plays in developing transhuman technologies. Most of our goals cannot be reached by singular humans. In many cases we must even "interact" with would-be opponents as covert allies. "Interactive", contrasts passive completely, while adding the positive attitude of voluntary cooperation and without any negative connotations!
