Stochastic design of natural determinants of cell fate. Synthetic and systems biology, pharmaceutical science, and nanobiotechnology are a subset of approaches for stochastic design to actively bias blue cells into a new cell fate distribution.

"Look, I really don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive, you've got to flap your arms and legs, you got to jump around a lot, you got to make a lot of noise, because life is the very opposite of death. And therefore, as I see it, if you're quiet, you're not living. You've got to be noisy, or at least your thoughts should be noisy, colorful and lively."
