In science:

Additionally, the physiological measurable parameters of the brain are fixed by a number of factors (genetic, epigenetic and environmental ones), and in particular by sensorial impressions.
Quantum randomness can be controlled by free will -a consequence of the before-before experiment
It describes a method, called “Epigenetic Tracking” (“Cell Tracking” in previous work (Fontana, 2007)), to generate arbitrarily shaped 2-dimensional arrays of cells by means of evolutionary-developmental techniques, i.e. by evolving genomes that guide the development of the shape starting from a single cell.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
As the number of possible epigenetic types (and hence the search space of the genetic algorithm) can be very large, the evolutionary process can become very slow.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
In this interpretation the biological counterpart of the epigenetic type could be implemented in real cells by means of either epigenetic or genetic mechanisms.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
The information stored in such methylation patterns is the biological counterpart of the epigenetic type in our model.
