Syntropy 

The
law of syntropy stems from
the equations that combine special relativity with quantum mechanics. These
equations have a dual solution: one that describes positive energy that
diverges from past to future, and one that describes negative energy that
diverges backwards in time from the future to the past. The negative solution
had been rejected by physicists because it was considered impossible, but in
1941 the mathematician Luigi Fantappiè realized that while the positive
solution is governed by the law of entropy (en=diverging, tropos=tendency), the negative solution is governed by a
symmetrical law which Fantappiè named syntropy (syn=converging, tropos=tendency).
For us, that we move forward in time, syntropy describes energy that
concentrates and leads to increase differentiation, complexity, structures
and order. Fantappiè noticed these properties in living systems and came to
the conclusion that Syntropy is the energy of life
and that life is moved by final causes. The extension of science to syntropy
is well described by Fantappiè in this letter to a friend: "As a
consequence of conversations with two colleagues, a physicist and a
biologist, I was suddenly projected in a new panorama, which radically
changed the vision of science and of the Universe which I had inherited from
my teachers, and which I had always considered the strong and certain ground
on which to base my scientific investigations. Suddenly I saw the possibility
of interpreting a wide range of solutions (the anticipated potentials) of the
wave equation which can be considered the fundamental law of the Universe.
These solutions had been always rejected as “impossible”, but suddenly they
appeared “possible”, and they explained a new category of phenomena which I
later named “syntropic”, totally different from the entropic ones, of the
mechanical, physical and chemical laws, which obey only the principle of
classical causation and the law of entropy. Syntropic phenomena, which are
instead represented by those strange solutions of the “anticipated
potentials”, should obey two opposite principles of finality (moved by final
causes placed in the future, and not by causes placed in the past) and
differentiation, and should be noncausable in a laboratory."
