    Actually, I did mean emanence, but it's a coinage. The word comes from a specialized Marxist discussion and may have never gotten wider traction. The idea behind it was "belief in a value that shines out from within the individual." e- out, rather than im- inward.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.

      Usually immanent refers to the idea of the divine (thus value) as present in the world: the antonym of 'transcendent'.  "Inner light" would ironically be a better interpretation than the emanate "outer light" of a god beyond matter, space, and time, such that any divine spark within is really just a pale reflection like the moon.
