I will give a popular introduction to a mathematical idea that lead to the development of a whole new class of techniques for graph rewriting, the so-called rule algebraic framework. More precisely, the type of nondeterminism encountered in stochastic graph rewriting systems and other types of continuous time Markov chains may be quite naturally described via first deriving an abstract algebra of transitions, the representation of which then yields the nondeterministic action on states. I will also sketch the benefits of this viewpoint in terms of "stochastic mechanics", an adaption of techniques from quantum mechanics and statistical physics to stochastic GTSs.
