Yeah, emergence is from evolution.
I mean for me, emergence is a natural language because I first learned about it when I was like 12/13 years old, things about why birds flocking and cloud formation are similar and stuff related to the hole in the ozone Layer which was the big deal in the 1980s and they passed laws that actually succeeded in eventually fixing it.
The topics of chaos theory, complexity theory, systems and emergence, fractals, systems failures in engineering, are a family of topics I’ve gravitated towards before I’d even started puberty.
All brand new stuff to me at the time, science shows talking about it, era of Carl Sagan but there were others too.
They put a kind of religious quality to “awe and wonder of the universe” which meshed nicely with my religious-y things – and I’ve carried it through to now, deepening my knowledge, but not really changing my purposes. They wander around the same things in some fashion.
