In the 1920s physicists had rejected half of the solutions of the fundamental equations of the universe, since they imply retrocausality and the possibility of perpetual motion. Analysing the properties of the solutions that had been discarded the mathematician Luigi Fantappiè noticed that they explain the mysteries of biology, such as energy concentration, the increase in differentiation, complexity and order and he coined the term syntropy (combining the Greek words syn=converging and tropos=tendency). Syntropy is capable of unifying different scientific disciplines in a harmonic way, opening in this way the road to a Unified Theory, a theory of everything that encompasses in a coherent theoretical framework all the manifestation of the universe.
