Emergente // Realidad nueva que emerge de los cambios.
…the process by which patterns or global-level structures
arise from interactive local-level processes. This
“structure” or “pattern” cannot be understood or predicted
from the behavior or properties of the component units
alone. (Mihata 1997:31)
Emergence is the production of global patterns of
behaviour by agents in a complex system interacting
according to their own local rules of behaviour, without
intending the global patterns of behaviour that come about.
In emergence, global patterns cannot be predicted from the
local rules of behaviour that produce them. To put it
another way, global patterns cannot be reduced to
individual behaviour. (Stacey 1996:287)
