Default There is a word....

There is a word I am trying to find.

It describes an event which happens one and only once. It is as a result of its environment and can never be replicated. The closest I got was phenomenon but that's not it.

What about: spontaneous, inexplicable, unprecedented, impromptu, involuntary, unpremeditated, instinctive or unrivaled

Thanks, XYZ. It's not any of those....the word I'm thinking of carries of connotation of "this will never be replicated."

gah!

If I could remember it I would be sure. I'm leaning towards adjective, but I suspect it could be both.

Event horizon.

That's probably not it, but I thought of it and I have a compulsion to post about it

Dear, Flying Spaghetti Monster! No.

Let me explain what I am trying to describe, maybe it will help. I want to say that Singapore's Economic Model cannot be replicate because the growth they achieved was a consequence of a convergence of international and domestic factors which are unlikely to reoccur.
