Mission

Potintia closes the gap between possibility and reality. We do this in a manner that ensures success and is repeatable.

Potintia is a take on the word "potentia". Werner Heisenberg, a founder of quantum theory, defined potentia as "something standing in the middle between the idea of an event and the actual event, a strange kind of physical reality just in the middle between possibility and reality." - a concept originally introduced by the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle (Source: NPR)

In Heisenberg's words: "The probability wave of Bohr, Kramers, Slater… was a quantitative version of the old concept of “potentia” in Aristotelian philosophy. It introduced something standing in the middle between the idea of an event and the actual event, a strange kind of physical reality just in the middle between possibility and reality." (Source
