There are two interesting moments in the journey of a wave: the moment that it is forced to return back to its guiding baseline and the moment that it crosses that baseline.
There is a Normalizing Force that acts on the wave to bring it back to the momentary equilibrium of its baseline.
There is also an Inflection Point that happens at that moment of crossing the baseline, when it changes course, bending from a concave to convex curve as it ventures back out past the baseline.
We recognize that both moments, one elongated, the other instantaneous, are moments experienced in a DIG as Individual and Collective Emergence.
