Eggs and the Universe

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Cosmology, Culture, Biological Evolution, Science & Society,

The video (4m 20s) linked below delights and is filled with wonder in its offbeat thinking. Shelled eggs brought to us by the processes of biological evolution, are remarkable products of biological engineering. They have been used more than once to prod scientific investigations. 

Of course, in the end, this film is more culture than science--more about interesting similarities without considering the differences

The video is from the BBC IDEAS Universal Wonders which the egg embodies. If you are interested in the notion of the world egg, hinted at in this video, the Wiki entry is worth a visit. I think of it as the cosmic egg.
