Why the chicken crossed the road is the lamest riddle in history, which appeared in 1847.
Behind this riddle, is a psychological challenge, though the answer is easy, we are allowed to question it, it is a healthy challenge. our answer really depends on how we perceive any issue in our life, how simple or complicated we all are allowed to adhere to our deepest thoughts & question “why things happen in a certain way”.
Einstein might argue “ wither the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken, it depends on your frame of reference”. Aristotle “simply to actualize its potential”. Mark twain “the news of its crossing has been greatly exaggerated”. Plato might answer “for the greater good”. Ibn Al. Nafis’s “Crossing the road is a try to confirm a theory”.
My answer would be while there should be a motivation & a real reason as a drive for crossing the road or no reason at all, it holds possibilities starting, from having guts or being lost, there is a reward on the other side, seeking a venture, escaping from something, & It doesn’t matter if she crossed or not, will this affect me?
Effective Questioning is helpful, brings insight, and fuels curiosity, which cultivates wisdom. Never stop questioning, even the slightest subjects have an impact.
