How it is possible pls help me to understand

Dear student,
The muscles of the thigh is used to create tongue can be made possible by induced pluripotent stem cell therapy, and therapeutic cloning or somatic cell nuclear transfer. In somatic cell nuclear transfer somatic cell (2n) nucleus of the patient is inserted into the enucleated egg to form embryonic stem cell which are pluripotent in nature and have the ability to give rise to all the tissues found in an adult. So, tongue can also be formed from thigh cell by somatic cell nuclear transfer.
In induced pluripotent stem cell therapy adult somatic cell can be converted into pluripotent stem cells by the introduction of different transcription factors which can give rise to all the different types of tissues of the human body. This therapy is still in its initial stages of development.
