Emergence is finally making sense!  We see emergence in the way we process information and apply it to situations new and old.  The Game of Life is very revelant in the fact that certain outcomes can emerge from certain patterns.  Sometimes these patterns are not what was expected; this is true in life.  I would apply these ideas to my students who come to me on various levels of learning.  I would use this as an introduction pattern of how students can think when given different situations.  Sometimes you can emerge from the situation successfully and other times you have to go back and make more observations; but isn't this what life is all about?
