"...the problem about the egg and the hen, which of them came first, was dragged into our talk, a difficult problem which gives investigators much trouble. And Sulla my comrade said that with a small problem, as with a tool, we were rocking loose a great and heavy one, that of the creation of the world."                                                  Plutarch, Table Talk, Moralia 120 AD

The process of a hen laying an egg starts with the embryo passing through the oviduct; generally taking 24 hours as does the revolution of the earth on its axis. There’s a similar relationship of space and time between a women’s ovulation, mine, to that of the moon orbiting the earth: 28 days between phases of the new and full moon.                                                                                                   Hope Sandrow, spacetime June 2007
