This is one of the oldest questions I know of and for many years I asked the opinions of the people around me. Unfortunately, most of the people around me can philosophise as well as my shoe. So, what came first, the chicken or the egg? Was it the chicken that laid the egg or the egg that grew to be a chicken? Was it the egg that grew into a dinosaur or the dinosaur resembling a chicken that laid the egg? Or does a circle have no beginning?
