Something appears out of nothing, there are loose ends hanging seemingly unconnected. Elements connected together creating something new. A new version of being.
We can observe ‘Emergence’ from the smallest to the largest: Electrons, protons and neutrons are coming together to produce an atom. Atoms have novel and unique characters, no resemblance with the electrons or protons.
Another case of emergence is the interaction of living organism to create a social network, culture or religion. The appearance of something new bears unique possibilities.
Emergences appear by accident, by stategic development or through serendipity. No matter how, the important part is the process itself and the novel characteristics.
