The question presupposes one came before the other, the idea of oneness, the idea that two can be the same, other states of existence, what a chicken is, and that the question has an answer.

We also must also address the question of conception.

When does an egg start; when it is formed, when a sperm penetrates the egg, when it has reached a certain stage of development, or after it has been laid, it some other time?

When does the chicken start; as a sperm, when it penetrates the egg, when it reaches a certain stage of development, after it has been laid, after it has been hatched, or some other time?

The question of what came first; the chicken or the egg, is not fully formed and therefore invalid.

I say the egg because the first chicken came from an egg, which came from what we delineate as something that's an ancestor of a chicken.

But if someone wants the philosophical questioned answered, I say the chicken because all things need a creator- even things, or matter themselves.

Two alternative expressions of the same thing. It is the same circle conceived under two different "attributes." Both the identical individual. This here chicken distinguished from all other ones. Go back, find the elements out of which the egg is made up, the material of the egg, its from What. You find the hen and her reproduction system, the cock and his. The agents that generated the egg, we still do not understand what an egg really is, unless we recognize the egg as a possible chicken. So, which comes first, obviously the chicken comes first in understanding eggs, the chicken that is to be.
