Oh, yeah! Happens all the time, right?!
Well, the investigation for "Amoeba" was like that.
When I was in high school and college, I studied a variety of sciences. In the field of biology, the science of life, you start with the simplest of organisms: amoeba, a single-cell organism.
Originally the cell was named, "Proteus," after the Greek god of the sea, for it's shape-shifting capabilities.
