If negentropy opposes entropy, then I propose negextropy is a semi-facetious
answer to your semi-rhetorical question.  :)

I would further venture that the net effect of extropian efforts in equal
opposition to your own extropian efforts result in overall stasis.  It seems
to be the nature of this system that any fluctuation in global direction
generates a normalizing force which seeks equilibrium.  I believe the goal
of this list is to agree on a direction long enough to establish a 'better'
baseline around which to settle upon.
