Here’s an insight from the quality chicken who is positive that she came first before the egg.

Which came first?

The chicken or the egg?

The dilemma goes on and on.

After a delightful conversation with a friend about an age-old question onΒ ” Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”, it occurred to me that even people with great minds can end up twisted with this infinite loop question. We can choose to engage in a long complex debate all day but will never come up with a definite answer. Instead it will wind up igniting a next silly fight and possibly a make-up sex.

What is rather appealing is the provoking sense of the question that opens a can of worms. It invites us to reason and think of what could be the possible answer.

One can choose to be scientific or philosophical, but the answer no longer matters as you have fallen for the bait of reasoning. The different answers suggest that everyone has different ideas and point of view. This question is designed that way. So don’t even try to argue – your brain will only hurt.

As for me, I am positive that I came first – simply because I believe so.
