perhaps the first real noticing of this term was via Venessa‘s emergent by design..
like the dance of the self-directed bee/person/atom with the self-organizing system (both often/alway one and the same – fractal ness – simply from different vantage points.. points in time ness).. both intensely focused on listening – to being ness.. while immersed/swimming in trust in order to freely follow whimsy/change/lines of flight.. (rather than lines of best fit)
part of the emergent (undefinable) property come from the self-directed self having
from very bottom of Sugata Mitra‘s page (his talk in 2010):
emergence – the appearance of a property not previously observed as a functional characteristic of the function, it’s not supposed to happen, but it happens.
