Cell Division and Reproduction

It has already been mentioned that a cell only has read, write and execute permission within its own boundaries. Considering that the primary function of the cells is to make copies of themselves in other areas of the system's memory, this may seem like an odd restriction. However, the mechanism of cell division and reproduction employed in Cosmos was inspired (albeit fairly vaguely) by the process of cell division in biological organisms.
