    Tony — I request two things. First, please watch the Kauffman video. Second, please read p. 25 and pp. 31-32 of new edition of Sacred Depths. IMO the part to focus on is not a free-floating noun like Emergence but the adjective emergent as in emergent properties and emergent dynamics. These are the something -elses-from-nothing-buts. They are very real. Like swim bladders.
