    <I have been reading up on emergent properties, and wonder whether the conception of Emergence applies to memes. >
    John you will find the subject addressed in my 1995 <> management learning paper and by Ray Shaw and I in
    Shifting the Patterns. Various other references may be found in <> Lord and
    Price (2001), including Gell Mann (1996). I trust if you have been reading around emergence Murray Gell-Manns contribution will not need me
    to introduce it.

    The URL is still current.
