Syntropy derives from the fundamental equations of the universe.


The energy/moment/mass equation E2=m2c4+p2c2 has two solutions for energy: one with positive time and the other with negative time. Negative time implies that the future can retroact on the present and on the past. Since the speed of objects is practically zero compared to that of light (c) Einstein suggested to consider it equal to zero (p = 0) which brings back to the famous E = mc². But the discovery of the spin of the electrons, a rotation that has an amount of motion close to that of the light, forced scientists to use the extended equation in quantum mechanics, thus obtaining always two solutions: advanced waves and retarded waves, matter and antimatter. This sparked a heated debate that ended with the rejection of the negative time solution, despite the experimental evidences.


In 1941 Luigi Fantappiè, one of the major mathematicians of the time, working on the mathematical properties of the two energy solutions, discovered that the positive time solution is governed by the law of entropy and describes energy that diverges from a cause, while the negative time solution describes energy that converges towards an attractor, increasing in complexity, differentiation, structure, order and is governed by a complementary law to entropy which Fantappiè called syntropy (combining the Greek terms sin, which means convergent, and tropos which means tendency).


In the essay “The Unitarian Theory of the Physical and Biological World” Fantappiè identifies a material/visible world governed by the law of entropy and an invisible world governed by syntropy, typical of life.


Syntropy makes it possible to explain the mysteries of life and quantum mechanics in an elegant way.


Fantappiè failed to provide experimental evidence to support the syntropy theory, as he was not able to perform retrocausal experiments. In 2007, Antonella Vannini formulated the following operative hypothesis: "If life is nourished by syntropy, the systems that sustain life, such as the autonomous nervous system, must show retrocausal activations." Within her doctoral research in cognitive psychology, Antonella has carried out experiments that show a strong retrocausal activation of the autonomous nervous system, thus giving experimental support to the syntropy theory. She also showed that retrocausal effects are mediated by feelings (associated with the area of the heart) and that the brain can access this information only minimally: we feel the future, but we don’t know it.


In her doctoral thesis, Antonella describes consciousness, the feeling of existing, as an expression of syntropy and life as a system in between the visible and the invisible, the past and the future, the head and the heart. The heart feels the future and gives direction, while the head learns from the past and provides the tools for action. Both are necessary!



Entropy and syntropy are the two complementary aspects of energy and can therefore be represented by using a seesaw



When entropy decreases, syntropy increases. Life must always reduce entropy and increase syntropy. If this doesn’t happen, we have crises, suffering and we towards self-destruction.


But entropy is produced by our activities! How can we remain active and increase syntropy at the same time? This is the challenge. This is the game of life!


By reducing entropy and increasing syntropy it is possible to enhance wellbeing and wealth and to resolve situations of crisis.


Furthermore, it activates the invisible world of synchronicities, meaningful coincidences that have a purpose. Wolfgang Pauli showed that there is a causality invisible to us since it acts from the future.



The concept of synchronicity does not question the notion of causality. It holds that just as events can be grouped by causes, they can also be grouped by ends (purposes). Causality acts from the past, while synchronicity acts from the future. Synchronicity is significant as it leads to goals, giving direction/meaning to seemingly disconnected events. According to Carl Jung and Wolfgang Pauli, causality and synchronicity both operate on the same indestructible energy, united by this energy, but at the same time complementing each other.



The entropy/syntropy model applies to all sectors. From agriculture (2), to the resolution of individual, environmental and social crises, as well as corporate crises.
