The Egg was incorporated as a sacred sign in the cosmogony of every people on the Earth, and was revered both on account of its form and its inner mystery.
The gradual development of the invisible germ within the closed shell, the inward working, without any apparent outward interference of force, symbolized the origin and secret of Being.
From a latent “nothing” was produced an active something, needing only heat. Gradually evolving and breaking its own shell, the creature appeared to be a self-generated, and a self-created being.
This must have been a standing miracle from the beginning!
