Albany, NY is happy to find it's landmark Egg on display in The Stranger.
Why is concrete the ultimate substance?
Why is an egg the ultimate shape? why not an n-dimensional cube?
Or a p dimensional brane for that matter?
I'll have one of whatever Charles is drinking.
Holy yoke cadaver, Batman.
It could only be the work of...
What came first, the cadaver or the egg?
@7 - Sorry
I suspect this might have been a concrete form, i.e., something you pour concrete into to fabricate a particular object, rather than an actual solid concrete object. The article is not too clear. A photo would be nice.
I read the article again, and it does say "encased in concrete" but I sitll would like to see a photo....
What's it all mean, maaaan?
@3 Jesse, the egg is the ultimate shape for a couple reasons.
One: it is the most common shape in the universe. Describing the shapes of cells, seeds, eggs, droplets, orbits, planets, suns, galaxies, and more, far more accurately than a perfect circle (which is incredibly rare in nature).
And Two: it is a universal metaphor for Life, and the beginning of life.
@1 A, concrete is the ultimate substance because it is a rock that can be formed into anything Man wants. It is both a liquid and a solid. It represents our ability to shape our world to our desires. It represents the whims of Money and Power to build and create. It is, in short, our future. Building a concrete future.
Seriously, don't you people read books any more?
