There may be "complexity drives" or extropic forces at work that we have
no notion of at present.
Advanced life is very hard to explain by mere random selection.
Are the physical forces such as electromagnetism, nuclear, gravity, etc.
the *only* forces at work in the universe or are there other forces? - a
life force, or extropic force, if you like.
What do extropians think about this?
I have no concrete theories about what these forces might be, or even if
they exist, but I suppose we can at least make some hypotheses.
