 Knew I should've checked that! It was published in 1972.

  And if you were that young, I have to wonder if it might've been Gahan Wilson's story, the title of which was a black nearly circular spot, which grew larger and gained pseudopods and antennae over the course of the story, nearly filling the page by the end. It was first published in Harlan Ellison's anthology AGAIN, DANGEROUS VISIONS (1971).

 I haven’t seen any responses to this question.  Here’s a guess.  Could it be “Flatland”?  Wikipedia points to a math fiction database.  Perhaps ken could find his story there.
