I have been thinking myself about transhuman daily life, and how to make
daily life more transhuman.

<much food for thought *snip*ped>

This is something I want to get into the habit of, myself--thanks,

Consider the environment as a somewhat diffuse and more-remote part
of the self; then puttering with one's environment is, to some degree,
an automorphic act.

Does this make Martha Stewart a Secret Agent of Extropy?

Well, if looking at her stuff doesn't make you so depressed you can't
move... ;)

I wonder how many areas of our daily lives that can be improved or
re-evaluated in a more transhuman direction. Being able to do practical
things (and not being afraid of doing them) is a first step towards
independence and personal growth.

BINGO! Exercising the "choice" muscle, along with the "it-matters"
gland... :)
