Abstract

We consider models of emergence, adding downward causation to conventional models where causation permeates from low-level elements to high-level behaviour. We describe an architecture and prototype simulation medium for tagging and modelling emergent features in CA-like systems. This is part of ongoing work on engineering emergence.
