- adj. of or relating to extropy
Sorry, no etymologies found.
All extropic systems -- economy, nature and technology -- are governed by self-accelerating feedback cycles.
Next to the decadent selenians and the brawling aresians, though, the Superiors were puritans; their strict extropic philosophy — whatever the hell that was — made drinking, smoking, using drugs, eating meat, and mating with baseline humans (i.e. Primaries) reasons for expulsion from their clans.
This is apparently one of the ‘extropic’ universes, the sterile ones.
The concept of a resilient, open, extropic community / family / small-group 'backbone' is kind of like those old families, except updated and with emphasis on the technologies used to keep strategies competent and up with the times.
