Which came first the proverbial chicken or egg; the positional insight or the chess move; the object of our reverence and love or our belief?

Oh that egg and that chicken they both evolved from birdies who weren't primary chickens and didn't lay chicken eggs but gradually they became like chickens over time til they were chickens laying chicken eggs at last alright; however I repeat that both that chicken and that egg they do lack of an established own-being, ie their nature is "empty" just as it is perfectly described by the philosophical concept of emptiness/ sunyata;
Mind you, Bobby my Boston bad, in the beginning the chicken (who was not a chicken but merely a kinda birdie) and the egg (that it wasn't a chicken egg I reckon) they were both just one of the possible manifestations that they could indeed take place within the classical realm of the observer known as Planet Earth by means of the well known to us miserable evolutionist atheists as beautiful soup;
