Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
- from a great scientist
Dear Great One,
Those indentured chickens are descended from old wild species of the tropics, but even their earliest feathered ancestors are not nearly as old as the egg. There are fossils you may find of eggs laid by the great lizards, and there were creatures here ages before them who have left no identifiable traces, but whose first breaths of the balmy seas were taken upon hatching too.
And there are even some who tell that the world itself was formed out of a great egg laid upon the shoreless sea of night. And when it hatched, all of the dreams and light it held were made visible (ourselves included - and since we all create dreams of our own, the world continues to expand).
An egg holds the idea for something, that it shall come to be. And all things and all motion follow the ideas in which they were first conceived.
We consider this question now to have been thoroughly answered, but if anything is unclear, please do leave us another note.
