The Greek word entelécheia it came to late Latin as entelechīa, which in our language became entelechy . The first meaning of the concept that mentions the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE ) in your dictionary refers to something that is unreal .

For example: "The government's economic program is an entelechy: in reality, the president is making irrational and impulse decisions", "The popular fervor for the singer is an entelechy promoted by his representative to raise his price", “The solidarity project was nothing more than an entelechy designed to raise funds”.

An entelechy, in this sense, can be a speculation , a assumption or one guess . Suppose an individual begins to imagine what his life would be like if he had made other decisions (studied a different career, married to another person , etc.). These thoughts are entelechies no longer have a real livelihood: that is why the results of these imaginative processes have no existence.

Aristotle he also resorted to the idea of ​​entelechy in the development of his philosophy . For the Greek, an entelechy is a kind of existence in which something works actively in itself to achieve an end which is intrinsic to him.

It can be said, therefore, that an entelechy is a objective that completes an entity since its achievement implies the development of all the potential of it. Thus, the entelechy is the conversion of a potentiality into a reality : it reaches fullness by concretizing the end for which it was predisposed.

Within the cultural field we have to establish that there are many authors who have used the word at hand to give titles to their works. This would be the case, for example, of works such as “Entelequia” by Álex Cé or “Las nations, entities or entelechies? Towards a transubjective state ”, which is written by Alberto Marco and Manuel Cruz.

And those works would be joined by others such as "Time machines and other entelechies", by Mirco Ferri; “Entelequia: spiritual science fiction”, by Luis Uribe y Re, and “The phenomenon of life II. The Entelequia ”, by Juan Francisco Valiente Hernández.

In the same way, in the city of Zafra (Badajoz) there is a place that responds to the name of Entelequia and offers its clients the possibility of enjoying an Escape Room session under the title "Mystery in the hotel". Within the mystery genre this activity is framed in which the participants must put themselves in the shoes of some detectives to try to discover the secret that revolves around it.

There is also the company Entelequia Cultural, which is made up of different writers and thinkers who are responsible for teaching not only seminars but also workshops where the objective is to hold a meeting that revolves around different areas of cultural life. And to be able to analyze them in depth they are developed while activities that are undertaken in retirement format.
