In 1941 the mathematician Luigi Fantappiè introduced a new type of causality into the explanation of life and evolution. The equations which combine quantum mechanics and special relativity show that, in addition to causality, retrocausality is also an ingredient of our universe. Whereas causality is governed by the law of entropy (diverging tendency), retrocausality is governed by a symmetrical law which leads to the increase of differentiation, complexity and structures. Combining the two Greek words syn=converging and tropos=tendency Fantappiè coined the word syntropy in order to describe the retrocausal action of attractors, the converging tendency of evolution towards a final unifying cause which he named love. A similar description was developed by Teilhard de Chardin and named Omega Point and by Carl Jung and Wolfgang Pauli, who called it synchronicity. The aim of the conference is to promote the sharing of contributions in this domain both in the scientific field and in the humanities and arts.
