Evolution is all about emergent properties..
It doesnt talk about one gene , one tissue or one organ...
consciouness is an emergent property.
complex body part arrangement is an emergent property.
complex metabolism is an emergent property.
complex sexual behaviours is an emergent property.
There is only one basic process and that is replication.
However at the level of organism some emergent properties can act against replication.
