Our Theme: Emergent Properties
Emergent Properties is a term that comes primarily from Biology to describe the sum being greater than its parts. For example, a collection of just the right chemicals can lead to self-replicating cells which have properties that are not obvious based on the component parts. Ecosystems similarly have properties that are not defined by the organisms living in them.
For us, the idea extends well into all disciplines. Culture emerges out of any group of people that gets together regularly. Emotions emerge out of words on a page or paint on a canvas. Collections of mathematical equations can fit together beautifully even if none of the equations themselves has any inherent beauty. And so on.
