It was my understanding that Max More and Tom Morrow originally authored the Principles, and that they have gone through several revision processes that involved the participation of any member of ExI that wanted to contribute. During my membership in ExI I was able to observe one such revision process. The openness to contribution from members to their founding principles should be advertised as a strength of ExI.

Credit for the fine crafting of the principles should go to everyone who contributed to them. I would find it hard to believe that a human, however intelligent and deep-thinking, possess such an infallible mind. If such infallibility existed, there would have been no need to revise the principles from their original form.
