By "emergent properties" I mean the new properties that come into existence when moving from one level of organization to another: from elementary particles to elements to inorganic molecules to organic molecules to living things to consciousness. It seems to me that there is a discontinuity at each level with the new properties being impossible to predict from the previous level. I have searched your archives but have found nothing relevant using the keywords I could think of. I don't expect an explanation of this phenomenon but I would appreciate any leads you can provide to published material on the subject. Thanks in advance. Richard Warrington email@example.com
