“One egg, one embryo, one adult – normality. But a bokanovskified egg will bud, will proliferate, will divide. From eight to ninty-six buds, and every bud will grow into a perfectly shaped embryo, and every embryo into a full-sized adult. Making ninty-six human beings grow where only one grew before. Progress.”

(Aldous Huxley – Brave new world)
