"The whole is more than the sum of the parts"

Who says scientists are reductionistic? Any superadditive system—due to complexity, interaction terms, valuation by an Lₚ norm with 0<p<1, or some other reason—adds up to more in total than the pieces individually do.

(Such Lₚ norms are semimetrics but not seminorms.)
