As Tom pointed out, beauty and virtue are not strictly defined - but
aesthetes and moralists agree that these qualities exist, even when they
disagree about what specific acts or items demonstrate the quality.
Therefore, the definition should be in the form of a subjective quality.

Extropy is the quality of creative order characteristic of living systems.
