Exactly - doesn't the above embody the majority of the Extropian ideals

I'm under the impression that Extropianism is being seen by those who have
only a cursory exposure to it (in particular via the media) as an extreme,
New Age type of futurism - whereas its nothing of the sort.

The Extropian Principles are pretty good principles to live by - I wasn't
too happy with earlier versions, but V 3.0 stacks up pretty well. Hell, the
way the principles keep changing and, I daresay, improving is a perfect
example of the Extropian ideals at work.
