Mitosis: Pulling Against Oneself

Transmitter wrote this at around evening time:

My family operates as a cell, a single unit made of several parts designed to function as a whole, yet mandated to divide. The cell reproduces by mitosis, splitting itself in half and in half and in half and in half and in half again. The process results in the production of thousands of cells.

My family got stuck in mid-mitosis, a perpetual state of pulling together and apart. A few partially-formed families have spun off from the spriraling, ripping bundle of cells, but none have left with enough structure to stay whole.
