Entropy & centropy, visualized…




In thermodynamics, centropy is a entropy antonym-like metaphor type of term posited to refer to energetic tendency for particles of a system to come together in an organized manner. The term 'centropy' is a combination of 'centration', meaning concentration, and 'negative entropy', meaning order.

Etymology 

The term ‘centropy’, defined as ‘where all things come together’, has been around since 1985, depicted, it seems, as a religious-themed philosophical conception that connected to the ‘real essence of finding out who you are’. The term, in this period, was defined as such:

“There is a thing called entropy where all things fall apart. There is also a thing called centropy where all things come together.”
