“The Existential Chicken”

Did the egg come first? Or did the chicken come first? Did the chicken egg come before the chicken? Do any of them actually exist? Is the material world real or does it only exist in our minds?

All of these questions and more, answered, as we explore the age old question of : Which came first? The chicken or the egg?”

Aristotle said that it was a never ending cycle that could not be defined. Was he right?

Never has this question been examined in such depth, in one place. We go right back to the origins of the universe, to discover a definitive answer. And we look at it from every possible perspective. Now you will have all of the information you need to answer the question and to support the answer you give, in your pocket.

Feedback for “The Existential Chicken” :

“…an alternative, entertaining, comprehensive and immersive read.”

“…fascinates even the less experienced reader.”

“An anecdotal, personable writing style, making the work a compelling and thought provoking read…will intrigue and fascinate the reader.”
