I'm sometimes asked to give a soundbite definition of extropianism,
and find I never can. I was configuring the 'fortune' utility
on my workstation, and saw this, which is apropos:

"Any philosophy that can be put in a nutshell belongs there."
-- Sydney J. Harris

I don't know who Sydney Harris is, by the way. I simply found
this amusing.

"Here the ways of men part:  if you wish to strive for peace of
 soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee
 to truth, then inquire..."  - Nietzsche
