effect of nature is a natural effect that
can mislead an observer in states of delusion by rendering cognitive
inversed illusions. In the UVS
worldview, the observable
universe in a universal
vortical system is intrinsically imbued with
this paradoxical nature, and all its harmonically resonated manifestations
are inherited with this paradoxical characteristic.
“The observable universe is paradoxical.” - UVS inspired -
The study on the paradoxical effect of nature for epistemic theories of truth, is focused on resolving natural cognitive paradoxes of empirically observed natural phenomena. This is through identifying the vortical fractals of unisonal vortex in the empirically observed natural phenomena based on the UVS model, and thus understands the mechanism of natural negations on how delusions are manifested to render cognitive paradoxes for their apparent observations.
Heuristically, this can elevate the perceptions of an observer for the natural phenomena to their transcendental levels to know how the cognitive paradoxes are counterintuitive, how they can mislead the observer with their delusively inversed illusions, and to simply understand fundamentally on why and how such naturally negated observations will lead to their cognitive paradox fallacies.
An empirically resolved example to illustrate a natural negation, is the perception of the Sun rising in the east from the horizon; what we are perceiving a natural phenomenon as it is might not be what it is.
The phenomenon of sunrise is a scientifically understood relative motion illusion. Its natural negating effect is caused by localized observation in a perspective on a seemingly still but rotating Earth; this is a cognitive paradox that was factually known and understood with modern science.
The Sun does not rise as it apparently seems to be; this is merely the perception on a rotating Earth that renders this paradoxical effect of relative motion illusion in its delusion.
Sunrise - The Sun appears to rise from the horizon
Most of us now can comprehend without a slightest doubt in general acceptance that Earth rotates and it revolves around the Sun. However, for millenniums in the past, the majority of people from all over the whole wide world in the illusion of knowing, were generally misled by its negating paradoxical effect that renders its delusion to cause its cognitive paradox fallacy.
The illusion of knowing in a delusion is apparently real in its cognitive paradox.
A paradoxical effect can consistently fool us with its cognitive paradox in its state of delusion.
With manifold negating factors that are naturally manifested in the perceptions of the observer, the underlying paradoxical effect causes natural phenomena to be intermingled with cognitive paradoxes for their localized views, and thus these would always render as wonders under all sorts of delusionary circumstances. These wonders are rendered in their delusively inversed illusions that are caused by their delusions with their cognitive paradoxes, and therefore they are counterintuitive, mysterious, confusing, and paradoxically misleading.
“Delusion is the mother of all its illusions of knowledge” - UVS inspired -
Paradoxically, the Sun does not rise in the east like it apparently seems to be, it is not stationary nor is it the center of the universe like it had been believed to be so with the putative laws of physics, and it is also not the central of the Solar System like it is being thought as with conventional wisdom; nothing is further from the truth than these false facts of past and present that were conceived in all sorts of delusion.
Without realizing the cognitive paradoxes that negate to cause delusions in the observable universe, the paradoxical effect of nature has had fooled even the very brilliant people.
The realization of a cognitive paradox awakens to its transcendental level that can elucidate its delusion.
With the delusion of a natural phenomenon elucidated, it reveals the negation of its manifested paradoxical effect that causes its cognitive paradox.
See UVS topics on "Allegory of a flat Earth event" that elaborates on a transcendental level that could resolve its cognitive paradox, "Critiques of the scientific method - Addressing the cognitive paradox fallacies" that elaborates on how we could simply be misled by some deeply rooted hard-core beliefs, and "Sunspot" that elaborates on how more than twenty mysterious phenomena of the Sun were resolved with the UVS methodology.
In the UVS worldview, the paradoxical effect of nature is as a result of a universal unisonal vortex mechanism that negates to cause the delusive circumstances to manifest in the cognitions of the observer; this is the causality for all sorts of natural cognitive paradox in their apparent observations.
The paradoxical effect of nature would cause cognitive paradoxes by negating the observation of natural phenomena to mysteriously render them in delusive circumstances with all sorts of delusively inversed illusion.
See UVS topics on "Optical illusions" that elaborates on the mechanism of some paradoxical illusions, "An apparently paradoxical universe" that illustrates on some known paradoxical illusions in natural phenomena that were empirically observed and scientifically understood, "differential rotations" that illustrates a cognitive negation, and "The vortical universe model of UVS" that illustrates on natural nested spheroidal vortices from macrocosms to microcosms in the observable universe. See also externally linked topics on "Physical paradox", "Paradox", and "Cartesian doubt".
When one looks into the night sky to observe celestial objects, negated by limited speed of light, everything observed are images of the past. The nearest celestial object as observed is the image of the Moon that is about one plus second ago, the Sun as observed is its image about eight minutes and twenty seconds ago at where it was, the nearest star Proxima Centauri as observed is its image of more than four years ago, the nearest spiral galaxy Andromeda as observed is its image of approximately two and a half million years ago, and a most distance galaxy Abell 1835 IR1916 as observed is its image of more than thirteen billion years ago. In real time, all these celestial objects would have had moved to other spatial locations in their comoving distance according to their trajectories; they are not at the locations where they are apparently appearing to be. Also, the first supernova caught in the act of its runaway explosion on January 9th, 2008, labeled as SN 2008D, was in fact an event that had occurred approximately 88 million years ago from that moment when it was being observed from Earth.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” - Albert Einstein
See a UVS subtopic on “The cognitive paradox fallacy in cosmic inflation on accelerated expansion of space” that elaborates on how the cognitive paradox of an important modern discovery was resolved.
In nature, the apparently observed natural phenomena that are being paradoxically rendered in all sorts of delusion with their delusively inversed illusions, are aplenty.
With an intuitive-inductive approach for intellectual illuminations in the conceptual frameworks of UVS to analyse apparently observed natural phenomena based on the UVS model, it could reveal delusions to resolve their cognitive paradoxes by illustrating the underlying structures and mechanisms of the natural phenomena with its hypothetical constructs. And these would lead to their immediate enlightenments with pristine clarity that have very profound resolving capability for enigmatic natural phenomena; the enigmas of enigmatic natural phenomena were elucidated by being enlightened in an awakened manner through knowing the paradoxical effect of nature that negates to cause the circumstances of their delusions.
Enlightenment on the paradoxical effect of nature enlightens.
With the enlightenments in the conceptual frameworks of UVS for resolving the underlying paradoxical effects of those enigmatic natural phenomena, it thus has had uncovered many types of naturally occurred cognitive paradoxes that are delusively rendering their empirically observed natural phenomena with all sorts of delusively inversed illusion.
This process has had resolved the cognitive paradoxes and mysteries of many enigmatic natural phenomena with the elucidations of their delusions.
See UVS topics on “Significant revolutionary discoveries of UVS" for some illustrations on elucidated delusions of natural phenomena, and "An experiment to demonstrate optical illusion" that illustrates with an artificially created delusively inversed illusion.
enlightenment experienced in its contemplating process, to put it in an
analogy, is while one who is stumbling in the dark and is making diligent
effort to get out of the wood, then in unexpected lightning strikes those
enigmatic scenarios on what the one was trying to figure out in the darkness
are suddenly illuminated. In flashes these render visual clarity for the
scenarios in contemplation, therefore those hard to figure out enigmatic
scenarios that are optically negated in the darkness are visually popped
out to him vividly in a sudden overall illumination.
This thus renders a holistic view of the actual scenarios with pristine clarity, and it could therefore trigger an explosion of discoveries. This manner of acquiring an essential knowledge that is required for breaking through is not deduced directly from engagement in a meticulous investigating and reasoning process, it is induced by enlightenment.
For the discovery of Archimedes' Principle, a breakthrough was made while Archimedes was taking a bath, he noticed that the level of the water in the tub rose as he got in, and realized that this effect could be used to determine the volume of the crown for a task he has undertaken at then. For practical purposes water is incompressible, so the submerged crown would displace an amount of water equal to its own volume. By dividing the weight of the crown by the volume of water displaced, the density of the crown could be obtained, and this was an intractable problem previously. Archimedes is said to have been so eager to share his realization that he leapt out of his bathtub and ran through the streets of Syracuse naked in a rush of jubilation proclaiming "Eureka!". Notice how the breakthrough idea had popped into his awareness in an instance on a subtle hint that is usually overlooked in a common everyday event.
“The only real valuable thing is intuition.” - Albert Einstein
Intuition is a cognitive function that apparently has the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason, it is the immediate apprehension of an issue without the intervention of any thinking or reasoning process. By diligently engaged in a synergy of inquiry and participating in the search or investigation, the knowledge induced by intuition in pristine awareness with visual thinking, would have the element of surprise in an awakened state with a rush of jubilation in its enlightenment. By making inquiry rationally with adequate preparation, and has the intuition on the actuality of an enigmatic natural phenomenon, it could lead to the enlightenment that would elucidate its delusion for resolving its cognitive paradox to understand the misconception, mystery, or anomaly of its apparent observation.
To understand how the revolutionary discoveries of UVS were made, one should try out this enlightenment experience himself, begin by understanding the abstracts on “UVS model”, “UVS worldview”, and “The unisonal vortex mechanism”. Be enlightened on these first, and then practice it on those enigmatic natural phenomena with resolved cognitive paradoxes, so as to understand the paradoxical effect of nature that renders all sorts of delusive circumstances in its topsy-turvy manner for their apparent observations.
By knowing the paradoxical effect of nature, it enlightens on how nature does wonders in a delusory inverse manner.
The awakening from a delusion is enlightenment; awakened from a delusion is enlightening.
Essentially, this is an epistemic process for the enlightenment on those enigmatic natural phenomena, where their apparent observations have had appeared to be enigmatic as a result of their cognitive paradoxes that render the delusively inversed illusions; the epistemic process with elucidated delusions could shed light in an intellectual manner with the UVS model to illuminate on dark enigmatic scenarios.
After addressing a cognitive paradox, and at the moment of being snapped out of its delusion in its awakening, it could resolve its misconception, mystery, or anomaly. Thereafter, other apparently related enigmatic natural phenomena could thus be further explored in a logical reflecting manner to visualize in the conceptual frameworks of UVS, which can be investigated by addressing their paradoxical effects for resolving their cognitive paradoxes with comparative analyses in the generalization of a nested vortical singularity paradigm that is scalable with the UVS model.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” - Albert Einstein
Being enlightened with UVS has an awakening effect on how nature could delusively render those natural phenomena in a delusory inverse manner. This is by realizing the paradoxical effect of nature so as to resolve all sorts of cognitive paradox that are typically rendered in a topsy-turvy manner, and by knowing the shortcomings in ourselves that would cause all sorts of misconception for the observations of natural phenomena. This has had led to the revelations for different types of unisonal vortex and their vortrexes in different forms with different mediums of viscous matter, uncovered one by one through unfolding the delusions in directly assocaited or remotely related natural phenomena of different scale levels, which evidently lead from one to another in the comparative studies that are consistently based on the UVS model.
In a qualitative evaluation approach for analyzing the vortical phenomena of nature, and by enhancing visualization with clarity in a transcendental manner through inductive analyses with all other conceptual frameworks of UVS, it thus meticulously synthesizes and develops to depict the UVS worldview. And in its paradigm shift, it can coherently illustrate how the entire universe works in a unisonal vortical motion as a single system throughout macrocosms and microcosms.
With the enlightenments, it can be incredibly easy to understanding the actualities of the apparently observed natural phenomena, but paradoxically, under all sorts of negated circumstances, the state of such enlightenments can be incredibly hard to attain.
See "Preface" for suggestions on how to effectively explore UVS, and the "Afterword of UVS" for more insights into the developmental background of UVS.
Although the basic principles of unisonal vortex mechanism could be explicitly understood, its fundamental concept negated by all sorts of paradoxical effect can be extremely difficult to grasp. This experience of acquiring its tacit knowledge is similar for anyone trying to see the illusionary 3D image in a stereogram picture, and is not familiar with how to view it.
The more one tries to see the hidden image of a stereogram in a way he is usually accustomed to when looking at things, the more he could not get it at all no matter how hard he tries. It has to be tuned-in by focusing in an unusual and unfamiliar manner (e.g. using the "Single Finger Method" to induce a cross-eyed vision), then magically the hidden 3D image would appear when the cross-eyed vision or wide-eyed vision is naturally organized on the 2D pictorial.
Image on right has a stereogram of a 3D counterclockwise vortex and its harmonic vortices that are pointed toward the viewer. For beginner, please enlarge the image for easier viewing and it is recommended to use the "Single Finger Method" for visualizing the optical illusion. After getting the hang for using the "Single Finger Method", one can also view those very fascinating animated stereograms in an apparent effect of three-dimensional optical illusion without using any 3D glasses. Try some of these animated stereograms from "Helical wave patterns" and "Standing wave patterns".
It would be an awe-inspiring experience in an awakened stage of enlightenment when one begins to realize how a natural wonder actually works with its delusion elucidated, and with its epiphany there are joys in finding things out. It is mesmerizing to learn from nature, which could wake up all his cells to drive him to dig up every information to understand any related working principles, and turn every stone to find answers that could lead to evidence for supporting or against the discovery of its actuality.
In any initial exploration for an enigmatic natural phenomenon, contemplate with the intuitive-inductive approach in a meticulous manner with the UVS model to form a hypothesis, and then test the aroused intuition with criteria of truth to evaluate its accuracy with the UVS' theory of knowledge. Apply necessary discretions appropriately to check with qualitative rigor for cogency, and also discreetly avoid the pitfalls of self-fulfilling prophecy. After getting the hang on the process of this tacit knowledge, and by applying its methodology with the UVS' philosophy of science, perhaps one might be able to make new discoveries in the field of his expertise on the case studies he aspires on.
wish to find the truth, no matter where it lies. But to find the truth we need
imagination and skepticism both.
We will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact.” - Carl Sagan
“We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and by the depth of our answers.” - Carl Sagan
Under paradoxical circumstances, when interpreting the actuality of a natural phenomenon as apparently observed, we could always be fooled by our preconceived ideas that innately arise with our inherent shortcomings. What we have believed as a truth that refers to reality is one issue, what is the truth is another issue. And what we thought nature was doing as apparently observed is often delusionary inversed from what nature in its actuality is doing in a natural phenomenon that is paradoxically rendered.
The paradoxical effect of nature would always cause such natural phenomena to be counterintuitive for the negated observer; the actualities for such natural phenomena are always hidden in delusions that would negate our perception to mislead us. Our awareness with preconceived ideas in fixed mindset is usually focused to only perceive what we have subconsciously prepared to accept, hence we are always misled by the paradoxical effect with all sorts of delusion in topsy-turvy realms.
See an awareness test video clip to understand how something so distinct within the field of direct vision can be completely overlooked right in front of our nose. See also an excerpt from "Cargo Cult Science" by Richard Feynman.
|Note: A small opaque object when is held right in front of a telescope directly blocking a distant object in the line of sight, the view magnified thirty times or more through this astronomy telescope focused on the distant object will still have a complete image of the magnified distant object that is slightly dimmer than usual in its field of view, this is without seeing the opaque object blocking the distant view. Take a lean backward and look at the lens of the eye piece and then the blocking object in front of the distant object could be seen. In peripheral vision through the telescope at a different optical wavelength that has magnified and focused on the distant object, the near object blocking in the line of sight in front of this mono vision telescope is like transparent that the distant object can be seen through the optically hollow out blockage.||
“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” - Albert Einstein
Always examine ourselves inward, the shortcomings such as flaws and limits are absolutely within us. And as a result of our limited bandwidths in many aspects, the actualities of naturally negated natural phenomena are therefore not apparent to us. Don't be stubborn with our established concepts or ideas against nature, don't condition our thought with our wish for how nature should be doing it, don't confine the abilities of nature in our thoughts, don't be impatient when fathoming an enigmatic natural phenomenon, don't be denial with what nature is revealing to us, and most of all, don't be ego.
The hardest part is with the egoistic attitude in us that would hold us from truly letting go preconceived ideas, and these would block us from any opportunity at all for resolving the cognitive paradox of any natural phenomenon that is paradoxically rendered; our ego negates our intuition to prevent us from being able to realize the paradoxes perceived in delusional circumstances. Any of such deep-rooted perceptions could only lead us to visualize any natural phenomenon with the confirmation bias of preconceived ideas, caused by how we have anticipated a preferred outcome that subconsciously satisfies our deep-seated belief. Thus, our perception would always end up regressing inside paradoxical realms to let us firmly believe that everything is thoroughly investigated, fully covered, and correctly understood. And with such illusions of knowing, we can perpetually fool ourselves in all sorts of delusion.
“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” - Stephen Hawking
The more we think we know in anything, the least we would explore outside our established understanding at the ease of our comfort zone, and the more hindrance we would have when fathoming any natural phenomenon for its actuality.
When fathoming any enigmatic natural phenomena with the UVS model, the first principle is that we must not fool ourselves.
In the contemplating process, have integrity and be absolutely honest with ourselves on any finding. And without a slightest attachment to our thoughts on any finding, have perseverance and stay focused. Put our preconceived ideas aside and free our imagination, surrender our rigid mind to our intuition, do not expect anything but be opened to everything including contradictions. And be malleable, then let the imagination run, let it flow, and let it show.
The next thing is to be so humble and becomes hollowed out in preparedness, and accept that we are actually ignorance of it.
“The only true wisdom is knowing you know nothing.” - Socrates
To fathom any natural phenomenon with the UVS model in its conceptual frameworks, all other preconceived concepts have to be trashed out until we are hollowed out enough so as to become receptive for new ideas without prejudice, so that we would not reject and can thus visualize and contemplate on any inspiration that could be entirely different from what was firmly believed. This is no mean feat, and our ego needs to be tamed and properly dealt with. Also, when trying to really let go any deeply rooted hard-core belief in its disbelief, one might emotionally undergo extreme traumatic mental experiences, such as stress, denial, disillusioned, anguish, depression, and felt lost; in cognitive dissonance it can be very agonizing to face a total collapse of our hard-core belief.
Nature could render us the inspirations for the insights only when we are hollowed out in preparedness, and has become truly humble with a pure intention to know.
See a UVS topic on "Logic and belief systems" that elaborates on the causalities for all sorts of science delusion.
“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself -- and you are the easiest person to fool.” - Richard Feynman
To be truly humble for contemplating on natural phenomena with a pure intention to know, in essence it needs internalized cultivation. This requires us to recognize and know that our hindrances and shortcomings are caused by our inherent limits, and honestly acknowledge that inherently we are cognitively negated ignorant fools.
“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.” - Albert Einstein
When we try to comprehend by means that have limited bandwidth in a spectrum to interpret a natural phenomenon that has a constituency of immeasurable frequency spectrums, and not knowing what exactly is referenced to, all sorts of misconception would intrinsically occur.
To resolve an enigmatic natural phenomenon in the UVS worldview, its counterintuitive issue has to be brought to a clear transcendental cognitive awareness with its underlying structure and mechanism perceived with the UVS model, so as to be able to vividly imagine it, conceptually feel it, and intellectually interacts with it to understand it intuitively; the key is to find ways to interact with nature to understand the working mechanism of its illustrated structure for resolving its cognitive paradox in the conceptual frameworks of UVS.
Recapitulating with the example for the perception of sunrise, it could be conceptualized to elucidate its delusion by doing the thought experiment to transcendentally visualize how a rotating Earth, can render the relative motion illusion of a rising Sun in its delusory localized perception. With this transcendental perception, and thus knows how it paradoxically negates, which is as a result of the Earth's rotating motion that paradoxically appears to the observers to be at rest, it could thus cognizantly resolves the cognitive paradox of the apparent observation.
Based on the UVS model, when the perception of an enigmatic natural phenomenon is coherently organized in the conceptual frameworks of UVS, with pristine clarity for its transcendental visualization, we could be unexpectedly enlightened by an intellectual spark, which would elucidate its delusion for resolving the cognitive paradox or mystery of the natural phenomenon.
With the transcendental visualizations, the resolving capability is simply profound for enlightening on enigmatic natural phenomena.
Through knowing the paradoxical effect of nature, enlightenments on enigmatic natural phenomena begets with their illuminations in the UVS worldview.

illusion of knowing and the illusion of having control
Without knowing the triggering mechanism and the causes for ambiguities in a paradox, we could be misled and therefore derive or follow sophisticated theories that were developed based on misconceptions. In a delusion with faith established on its illusion of knowing, and egoism brewing from its illusion of having control, in a state of serenity embracing the delusion as an unshakable belief with circular reasoning in a stubborn manner swearing by it, we can perpetually fool ourselves.
See an externally linked topic on "Illusion of control".
things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity;
and I'm not sure about the universe.” - Albert Einstein
A California wildfire - The burn of the century
Al Nino effect was blamed for a California wildfire that had raged for weeks, and reduced everything to ashes in its wake. In this disaster, thousands of houses were lost, and many firefighters were among those who have perished in this burn of the century. Such an event is usually treated as "Act of God".
Nonetheless, a meticulous investigation suggests there was a more fundamental cause that thus had evolved into this fire monster.
|In relentless efforts for decades, human have seemed to be able to overcome nature for its spontaneous wildfires. This was by enforcing legislation with strict measures to suppress all fires quickly, made efficient with evolving technologies to effectively control their spread. However, the successful measures for decades had resulted in massive cumulation of combustible materials, heavily stacked by fallen branches, leaves and the likes, layers over layers ladened on over the years. With the arrival of Al Nino effect affecting climate in a perfectly prepared situation, and with a cue that could be initiated by a lightning strike, the forest was burned in huge towering flames that were never witnessed before in wildfire history. This wildfire could not be effectively suppressed, had raged for weeks relentlessly and in its grand-scale everything the community had guarded for decades were all helplessly up in smokes.|
The firefighters thought they knew every aspect of fire, they didn't. In all those years they thought they have the situations under control, that was also an illusion. For this case, it took the awe of nature for us to wake up from this cognitive paradox of our delusion, and realize the real culprit for this burn of the century; our ignorance.

its hidden reasons and actions are understandable to man or not.” - Galileo Galilei
“The illusion of knowing in a delusion is apparently real in its cognitive paradox.” - UVS inspired -
“Delusion is the mother of all its illusions of knowledge” - UVS inspired -
A sixth sense myth
|It was speculated that since ancient time, just before a natural disaster would occur, some animals and insects seem to know it in advance to dash out at about a same time from their hideouts to run for their safety. More recently, it was well documented that just before the Boxing day Tsunami striked, many elephants at different locations in Sri Lanka and Thailand had acted in a strange but synchronized manner and went uphill, their acts had also saved the life of many other people and their gratified keepers. In contemplating the reasons for this phenomenon, many people believed that the elephants have "sixth sense", as in some kind of out of the world supernatural ability with a mystical type of connection among the elephants that is physically inexplicable.|
See a news report on "Tsunami Animals: A Sixth Sense?".
Nonetheless, before an earthquake or when a Tsunami has initiated, it is known that the Earth or sea would rumble with low frequencies, and electromagnetic waves emission occurs. It is now known that these infrasound vibrations though are inaudible to the human ears, can be thunderous roars of nature to seismically disturb these creatures on different continents. And the influence of electromagnetic waves emission during the geological event could also had prompted those animals with such sensories to flee; any of these evolved sensory mechanisms could have caused a synchronized reaction for these creatures on different continents to run for their life.
See a UVS topic on "Natural events on Earth with aligned and cross-aligned Solar System objects" that illustrates an externally triggered causality for natural events.
The manner without a solid basis with clear definitions, one can mask his ignorance by cranking up a not falsifiable proposition for any mysterious phenomenon that is apparently inexplicable. In its illusion of knowing, it has the comfort of being at ease, and this can also boost confidence with a sense of superiority in its illusion of having control. This is how one can create an illusion of knowing with an inclination towards a belief that has a higher order type of abstract explanation that reinforces with circular reasoning, and could always assert the mythical belief in the fallacy of affirming the consequent.
There are lots of busted myths for old and new ones alike, however, human psychology tends to hold firmly onto believing in myths.
It is difficult to get a man to understand a simple truth when his pride, faith, or belief depends upon his not understanding it.

This circular logic has been explored from all angles with all definitions by all cultures in all ways of looking at it through all great minds with over at least twenty-five centuries of debates, the paradox was generally thought as could never be solved at all.|
Chickens hatch from eggs, but eggs are laid by chickens, making it difficult to say which originally gave rise to the other. To ancient philosophers, the question about the first chicken or egg also evoked the questions of how life and the universe in general began. - Excerpt from Wikipedia on "The chicken or the egg".
Based on the concept of evolution in modern knowledge, through inductive reasoning that macroevolution happens and new animal species can evolve, whatever laid the egg that had hatched into a first distinct chicken, by definition that whatever was not a chicken. The answer to this question according to its specifications, egg definitely had come first before the first chicken could be evolved. Specifically, this egg with an embryo of a chicken that had hatched into a first chicken, was not an egg of chicken. This is the distinction between an egg of a non-chicken, and an egg of a chicken; chicken egg is laid by chicken.

The problems of the chicken and egg issue were caused by its fallacy of definition, which renders its paradox that can invalidate any hypothesis with its circular reasonings. Thus, by denying the antecedent or affirming the consequent, its a posteriori reasoning with circular logic can always be applied to invalidate any hypothesis to illustrate that the paradox could never be solved.
It is illogical to expect a definite answer to be consistence when the questions are put forth in a paradox with ambiguous definitions on the chicken and egg issue; it could never have a definite answer to the non-consistent question. It is illogical to think that by cracking this chicken and egg sequence it should also be able to find the answer for “how life and the universe in general began”, and hence has expected the answer to be something that is more sophisticated and complex. Attached to this notion, simple straight answer that does not fit the bracket would not even be considered as authentic with such fixed mindset.
Even by changing the definitions in any way for this issue, it would still have a precedent and therefore would still have a definite answer to it; an egg laid by a chicken is a chicken egg and this is regardless to whatever it hatches into. Therefore if the question goes “Which came first, the chicken or the chicken egg?”, then the definite answer is chicken had to come first; this is a logically valid answer to the specifically defined question from the evolutionism point of view.
It is true that “At no point was a ‘chicken egg’ created from a distinct ‘non-chicken’ species”, but this argument that was used to maintain the paradox is non sequitur. A “non-chicken” of course could not have laid a “chicken egg”, moreover, the conclusion was unrelated and could not conclude egg did not come first. It merely confuses the issue in its Gettier problem by contradicting it with a valid proposition that does not address the issue at all; this is a red herring fallacy of ignoratio elenchi. Note: The argument on “At no point was a ‘chicken egg’ created from a distinct ‘non-chicken’ species.” had been removed from an earlier version of "The chicken or the egg?" article from Wikipedia.
With lame logic and moot reasoning that asserts ambiguity, we can persistently confuse and fool ourselves.
