I think we all agree that the question about what came first, the chicken or the egg, is probably the most famous question ever. Danny even posted it in his Let Me Ask You A Question series and while I was trying to come up with the best possible way to answer it I started wondering why we always want to have an answer for everything.
Why can things not simply remain unsolved. A miracle in that sense. Something that we agree to just accept. Why do we need a scientific explanation?
This world is full of wonders, full of magic. Our body is magical. I mean just think about it. All the cells that create what makes us. The water, the skin, the blood the circulation the lungs and then break it down into the little pieces that have to come together to actually create bit by bit of everything that makes us, makes our body.
Of course we can break it down into cells all the way down to atoms and neutrons and so-ons… The question in the end will remain the same. How did it happen, how did it all come together and what actually created all of this. Just like with the chicken and the egg.
I know there are many scientists out there who crave to find the answer. But do we really need it? Can we not just look at things in awe and accept it for what it is: An unsolved mystery that will continue to amaze us.
Some questions simply don’t need an answer.
