Basically, *everything* IMHO is potentially connected to transhumanism
one way or another, but my point is that very often we discuss various
subjects here, be it in interesting and pleasant ways, without
connecting them to transhumanism or extropy at all... :-)

Let us say that I like Beethoven music (as in fact I do, btw).
Shouldn't I make an effort to clarify why I decided to raise a
discussion thereupon *in this list*, if I choose to do so, or what its
(alleged) relevance to the list topics might be?
