    Wouldn't you like to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned?

    You mean there's more than one chicken?

    You think that there's only one chicken, but it has a time machine so that when one sees more than one chicken it's in fact the same chicken at different ages after it's been sent back in time?

    The same chicken cannot travel through time and occupy the same space in space-time.

    Basic laws of time travel.

    I'm sorry but if we're going to start giving chickens time machines how are we ever going to answer that age old question of what came first, the chicken or the egg?

    You chickenologists never think things through.

    Which brings us back, in effect, to the OP and why did the chicken create the time machine?

    No. I like to learn and wouldn't like to live in a world where my learning has limitations.

    In reality of course the smart chicken crosses the road when nobody is looking, then nobody ever asks questions.

    I believe my cat keeps demanding that people open doors for her just so that we will ask 'why do you want to go through that door? You just came through there a moment ago!'

    No. If we did then we would be automatons. Without motive there is no purpose. So we question everything to find reason and meaning for life. Our very survival is contingent on asking questions like why, how and what.

    Actually the OP is...

    "Wouldn't you like to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned"?

    But surely that is only the case for 'Why did the chicken really cross the road?'

    Yes, but be careful, as otherwise you might choke.

    Okay then, just one:

    Why did the chicken cross the road, roll in the mud and cross the road again?

    Because he was a dirty double-crosser.
