There is no non-scientific term. There is a possible misusage of some terms, and that is poorly scientific. But it makes sense to say that the theory of heat has been reduced to the theory of kinetics energy of particles, or that chemistry has been reduced to quantum mechanics. A reduction can be made precise in term of representation of a theory in another, and there are many example, including the Mechanist reduction of physics to machine’s theology (itself reducible to computer science, itself reducible to elementary arithmetic). For “emergence”, in my own work, you can use “definable” instead. Prime numbers and computations emerges from the number relations in the sense that you can defined such notion from the axioms and logic given, without adding any new axioms. Now, when you put the experience into a particle, I do no more know what is a particle, nor what you mean by experience. It seems to me only confusing, and to build on the mystery instead of trying to solve it.
