You know that old riddle about the chicken and the egg and which came first? I had an idea about how to answer that, which is neither and both since they’re the same thing. You might as well ask which came first, the human or the baby. The problem isn’t that the answer is unknowable, more that the perameters are false, so you’re presented with what is in reality an absurd proposition that you have no hope of being able to find a solution to. Seems to be a good metaphor for a lot of things we encounter in life. The world presents us with an absurd set of perameters, and we just accept them, assuming more or less helplessly that an answer exists, but one that is beyond our knowing. Maybe the moral of the story is actually just, question everything?
