Philosophical questions or thought exercises with obvious answers in the physical world are dumb.

"Which came first: the chicken, or the egg?" Egg. Creatures born from eggs existed before chickens.

There's nothing to questions like that. They don't generate thought; they spur research, if that. "What's the sound of one hand clapping?" 'Oh, gimme a second; I'll try it out.'

You're not achieving what you hope to achieve, and you need to step up your game.
