 I like to think of extropy as the opposite of entropy because of the
 symetry involved. It parallels the construction of /exit/ and /entrance/ as
 opposites. In his 1994 book _Out of Control_, Kevin Kelly writes, "They are
 sure what they are looking for, but they intuitively feel that it can be
 as a complementary force to entropy. Some cll it anti-entropy, some call it
 negentropy, and a few call it extropy. >>

Yes but that is because of max
