Emergent Property

Consciousness is the scintillating blaze alive on a smoldering log, a flame emergent from complex interplays of biology and environment. Consciousness is greater than the cumulative elements from which it is produced, a roving free-form swirling cloud, a wandering storm over the latest landscape. Consciousness is always emergent like an undulating flock of birds. like the windswept grains of sand dunes. Consciousness is collectively aware, a normative quest linked to community survival, a reaching within for a larger knowing. Our God may be a force outside time and space, a consciousness of collective consciousnesses, a vast power offering the ethics of our survival, an emergent property of our collective minds.
