Word of the day: "Negentropic process" (or negentropy)

For future consideration and debate is how does it compare to:
  • Stigmergy (quoted often in Viable Systems model by Patrick Hoverstadt)
  • Syntropy
  • Vitalism
As a footnote, when looking at organisational developmental models such as from Richard Barrett, I believe that entropy applies all the way up the stages of consciousness (or in the Spiral Dynamics language, the shadow side of Green-Yellow-Teal etc.). Currently, the Barretts model only captures the entropy of the lower part of the stages model.
