The study of the amoeba cannot fail to raise a host of questions in the mind of any thoughtful man.
The amoeba is an illustration of a great kingdom of similar, practically unicellular forms, which have played no unimportant part in the geological history of the globe.
We found that reproduction in the amoeba could be defined as growth beyond the limit normal to the individual.
Both the amoeba and we live in the closest relation to our environment, and conformity to it is evidently necessary: life has been defined as the adjustment of internal relations to external conditions.
But this absence of death in other rather distant relatives of the amoeba, and probably in the amoeba itself, holds true only provided that, after a series of self-divisions, reproduction takes place after another mode.
The old amoeba has divided into two young ones, and there is no parent left to die, and death, except by violence, does not occur.
When such a bacterium comes in contact with an amoeba, it is taken into its body by becoming enclosed in processes which the amoeba sends out.
