The term extropy is a proposed measure of a system's intelligence, sentience, knowledge, adaptability, power, aliveness, vitality, diversity, complexity and capacity for growth. The more a system possesses these attributes the higher its extropy.
Extropy measures information rich order , that is the order in a system which is structured by embedded information about conditions outside the system. The similar term entropy also measures order and takes on a lower value as a system becomes more ordered, however if has difficulty in representing the nature of the order. Thus a crystal structure is highly ordered but contains no embedded information. A DNA molecule has structure and also information coded within it.
Extropy is also loosely used as the antonym of entropy, because it increases as things become more ordered and decreases as they become chaotic which is the inverse of entropy . Systems with a high extropy have a low entropy because they are highly ordered. But conversely systems with a low entropy may not have a very high extropy because although they are ordered , that order does not contain information about the systems surroundings.
The word was coined by Tom Bell (T.O. Morrow) and defined by Max More in January 1988 as:-
It is a measure of intelligence, its knowledge, power, life, vitality, diversity, complexity and capacity for growth. It is the opposite of entropy . This concept was developed TO Morrow (real name Tom Bell) in January 1988. The concept was elaborated extropista Max More . Extropisti claim to spontaneous order, which in their opinion is promoting decentralized and voluntary processes of governance, the promotion of tolerance, free market, diversity of thinking long-term view, personal responsibility and freedom.
Extropy is donated an uppercase Greek letter Pi thus Π. The change in extropy is more interesting than its absolute value.

Extropy has its law, too. It was first formulated by Edward Harrison:“Hydrogen is a light, odorless gas, which, given enough time, turns into people.”Just make it a tiny bit more general and update the terminology, and you get:“Large enough systems tend to form subsystems in which extropy grows.”
One who seeks to overcome human limits, live indefinitely long, become more intelligence, and more self-creating. A transhumanist who affirms the values and attitudes codified and expressed in The Extropian Principles. [Max More, 1988] http://www.extropy.org/neologo.htm#e
