  As a student of Zen, I agree with Stuart's assessment of 
suffering/samsara is itself Dharma/reality. However I don't know of any 
Buddhist school that teaches otherwise. All I know is that suffering as 
  psychological stress is universal in sensient beings capable of 
thinking and feeling in various degrees.

Some Buddhist psychologists merged the study of mind/consciousness with 
Buddhist's practice of awareness as in meditation.
Zen addresses this as an effective tool for relaxing the mind from 
entropic thoughts to see reality/extropy imho.

If extropic reality is a process of growth to relieve mankind's 
suffering then that parallels the goal of Buddhism towards liberation 
from suffering.
