Upon conception when the first cell begins to divide, up until it is 8 cells, every cell is said to be identical. How do 8 identical cells adapt to become over 210 different types of cell in a distinctive formation to create the human body as we know it?

Please excuse if my understanding is inaccurate, I was asked this and haven't an answer
