Goo that is hard to detect. This cryptic behaviour might be achieved in a variety of ways, some of which may be combined with one another. It might function at low concentrations and on small energy gradients, it might operate alongside or within other sorts of goo, it might disassemble once it has completed its function, or it might alter the operation of a nanoswarm or other machinery in ways that are difficult to detect.
