Auguste Meessen Professor Emiritus
Institute of Physics
U.C.L. Louvain-la-Neuve

Auguste Meessen is a physicist and professor emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium. He was teaching quantum mechanics, theoretical physics, solid-state physics and other matters. He developed a theory of "space-time quantization", based on the concept a quantum of length that is a universal constant like c and h. This generalization of relativity and quantum mechanics solves basic paradoxes and accounts for all elementary particles, as an alternative to string theory. Auguste Meessen did also investigate and continues to study physical puzzles like ball lightning, EM cancer detection and non-linear effects in brain-waves and memory processes. Since 1972, he investigated scientific aspects of the UFO phenomenon, and he was actively involved in the study of the Belgian UFO flap (1989-93). His model of UFO propulsion is based on observed facts and new applications of known physical laws.

Antonella Vannini Sintropia

I first approached the topics of retrocausality and syntropy in 2003, when they became the subjects of my first thesis in psychology, published in 2005 in the journal NeuroQuantology ( with the title "Entropy and Syntropy: from mechanical to life science". I then continued working on this topic in my thesis for the master in cognitive psychology; this thesis is available at with the title "Entropy and Syntropy: causality and retrocausality in psychology".
I am now developing this topic as a PhD student at Università la Sapienza of Rome, with the title "Quantum models of consciousness".


Ulisse Di Corpo Sintropia

I have a degree in psychology and a master in statistics and sociology. I have worked with the faculty of statistics, University of Rome "La Sapienza", and now I mainly work as a consultant for public, national and international, organizations.

Since 1977 I am interested in retrocausality and syntropy, and these subjects have been the topics of my thesis in psychology and statistics.

Stefano Siccardi E-mail:

I have a background in Math, and my job is software programming as a freelance. I have been studying parapsychology as a personal interest since the late eighties. The first area in which I have been involved was the study of psychics (including mediums, tarot readers, astrologers, etc.), their methods/belief system and their relationship with people who seek their advice. That work was completely informal. I am presently a member of a small informal group of independent researchers in Milan; our current research areas are the study of OBEs and their physiological impact, and the study of psychics using formal protocols. My work in parapsychology is described at: (but note that the website is in Italian).

Emilios Bouratinos is a philosopher of science. He studied law in Athens and philosophy in Innsbruck, Austria. However, disenchanted with 20th century analytical and positivistic philosophy, he turned early on to the thoughtful writings of the great physicists of our era. He discovered there that, in one way or another, most of these physicists considered a deep understanding of the mind indispensable for advancing further in the study of physical reality.

Thus, since 1972, Bouratinos has been devoted to the study of consciousness from a footing that is equally inter-disciplinary, epistemological and meta-scientific. Today he advocates the creation of a new science that, starting from the great breakthroughs of 20th century physics, will undertake to enter the profound conceptual implications of these breakthroughs into all major research activities and public policy decisions. He wants our civilisation to do nothing less than to start reflecting seriously on itself -- and beyond itself.

Bouratinos is fully aware of how difficult this will be. At the same time, he realises that without an ability to self-reflect and to translate this self-reflection into concrete action, our civilisation may not find the necessary guidance to survive.

Marsha Adams    
Matti Pitkänen  
Roger Taylor Dr Roger Taylor made a research career in fundamental immunology before becoming disillusioned with mainstream biology and medicine. Since then he has worked with an independent research group on biophoton output of the human body, and reproduction of Wilhelm Reich's orgone temperature effect. Also worked with Konstantin Korotkov's quantitative Kirlian equipment, mainly to demonstrate the effects of various therapies - including ormus. Recently developed an ability to dowse quantitatively for orgone, or life-energy, as produced by "orgonite": a composite of metal particles in artificial resin. A similar dowsable energy can be transferred by proximity to orgonite to some materials, such as water, and is to be found in several preparations of ormus. Further data on this research will be shared at the conference with those interested.
