The Emergence Pattern represents the moment of creative development. It is one aspect of the more foundational Pattern, Creativity. Emergence illustrates the appearance of a novel form through the recombination and creative fusion of previous forms. The emergence of novel forms must be balanced with the energy available for recombination and fusion. The role of Emergence is to launch new patterns of organisation.
The principle of innovative arising: the enduring health and evolution of any system depends on the appropriate balance and integration of the emergence of novel forms with the energy available for fusion and recombination, for a given context.
