An etelechy is something complex that emerges when a large number of simple objects are gathered together. This is a concept in the philosophy of science originated by Goethe.[1]

An example might be the letters of the alphabet, each of which individually evokes only a few sounds. Together, in the right order, they can form the Bible or the works of Shakespeare.
