Hi everyone!

As a new subscriber, please allow me to introduce myself. I have followed the list for a couple of months now and I hope I have at least some understanding of the habits and customs of the list.

I am kuudes from Oulu, Finland. My hobbies include studying human intelligence and sometimes general rationality. I have graduated as Master of Science in Information Processing Science a couple of years ago.

I am interested in the general concept of extropy and on many things I observe possibly being near the memescape of this list. If you want to give me some pointers, I appreciate your effort.

What is extropy? I think I have run into something, which relates to a system having capability of creating entropy in future, and also I have read the Wissner-Gross paper (dspace.mit.edu/openaccess-disseminate/1721.1/79750) on entropic force. In general, I feel somewhat confused on these concepts. What should I read and is it feasible for me to try to learn these things? Are these concepts related to the area of the interest of this list or some general community?

What should I know?

I welcome your input and thank you in advance!
