The Egg

This short story has apparently been circulating around the internet for some time, but I just came across it thanks to a friend. Finding things like this renew my faith in modern technology and its capacity to disseminate meaningful information to the masses. It reminds me that there are more results of modernism than just consumerism and empty distractions.

While I don't agree with all the ideas the story presents, there are some real gems in the dialog that are worth pondering.

How would you treat others, if every other person were you? Love thy neighbor as thyself? It's the old axiom with a dramatic new perspective. I like it.
