The term is Extropic Art, Eliezer. Imagination and creativity are essential
in getting here to here. However, I think I'll just ask Vernor Vinge, and
get his comments on it, as a visionary creative thinker. Not that I doubt
my own understanding of this, mind you. To the contrary, I am certain that
it one's ability to imagine, to visualize, to think out necessary steps in
achievements to acquiring, for example, desigining a space habitat, or
desigining a VR similation, that is essential in making same happen.
Regardless, of my own views, but I'd rather go to someone with whom you find
a respect and whose ideas you have simulated into your thinking.
