Ja!  Our vision of the *end game* really does directly affect the way we play.  Talk to any hardline environmentalist about *long term* vision, a million years down the road.  Is her vision different than yours?  It certainly differs from mine.  In my vision, sentience will maximize itself.  The maximum sentience configuration is what I am imagining.  
Transhumanism has a lot of addition elements, such as life extension, progress, self improvement and so forth, but my main interest is in establishing our mind-children, as Moravek termed it, with every atom and every photon somehow participating in the activity of thinking and creating.
