  3. Can you provide some context in which that term was used?
  4. In the book, he was talking about the possibility that a car can travel by itself through a wall an the appear on the street , and though this is possible, it requires a stochastic overflow condition, which is larger the age of the universe.
  5. chapter 17 : The average waiting time per stochastic ooze is much longer than the age of the Universe since the Big Bang. But, however improbable, in principle it might
