(1) Yesterday afternoon I answered the doorbell and came face to face with an evil homunculus .(2) In ‘Portrait of a Dwarf’, the homunculus stares back implacably at the viewer, returning our gaze while apparently indifferent to the upturned, writhing nude male in a glass cage to his left.(3) We've moved from imagining a little homunculus lurking in the sperm to one hiding in the genome.(4) As grubby and alcoholic as a homunculus can be, he is also a kind, sensitive soul and a musician of some talent.(5) Had Victor not abandoned his original mentors, necromancers like Paracelsus, Cornelius Agrippa, and Albertus Magnus, he might have created a harmless homunculus instead of the creature, who exacts revenge upon him.(6) There is no graphical representation - nothing like the tiny homunculus curled up in the head of a sperm which some of the earlier microscopists imagined they could see.(7) The story itself tells how lawyers from a big corporation try to muscle in on the momentous invention of an obscure homunculus , Charles Lang, whereby engines could run on plain tap water.(8) Yet other preformationists believed that the sperm contained the embryo and some even claimed to be able to see a tiny human - a homunculus - in the head of each human sperm.(9) The front desk was old-school, too - a weary homunculus behind a desk, reading a newspaper, fetching your key and your messages from the slots behind him.(10) When I finally met the man, a pinched homunculus with nervous eyes and no eyebrows, he pushed me right out of his office.(11) In the caricatured version, preformationism has usually been ridiculed as the belief that a perfect homunculus lies within each sperm or egg cell.(12) I mean, some parents actually post photos of these abominable homunculi , otherwise known as babies.
