and for the possibility that something will go wrong and we won't be able to roll back.

Just to clarify, I meant to make a natural amoeba grow artificialy without dividing. Not to grow an "artificial amoeba" although that could be a cool idea in and of itself.

and when I say giant I mean like 2 meters or more.
