Extropian music

> Here's a shortlist of candidate "extropian" tunes:
>> The "Blade Runner" soundtrack by Vangelis
>> Almost any other record by Vangelis. Try "Albedo 0.39" or "Direct."
>> The "2001" soundtrack.
>> Practically anything by David Bowie.
>> Brian Eno's "Ambient 1: Music for Airports."
>Continue down this path, and the criteria for membership to the tribe
>"Extropians" will become loving 2001, owning the "I'm an Extropian, whatever
>the hell that means" T-shirt and knowing all 258 verses of the Extropian

I _know_ that sounded banal! That was just a list of music that I, personally, find (for lack of a better term) "mind expanding." I disrecommend liking or pretending to like anything that's not "your bag." Individualism is an integral part of extropian thought; this was simply my personal take, not some warped plea for "party unity" or whatever.

And that's it.
