Why did the chicken cross the road? …to get to the other side; but what would you say?

Or better, what would be the general response or answer of NT / Rational people?

You cannot assume anything without possessing MORE DATA

-What route did the chicken take before arriving at the road?
-What there a disturbance at the current side of the road?
-what is there on the other side of the road?
-what kind of road did the chicken cross?
-what material is this road made of?
-what did the chicken eat or drink before crossing the road?
-did the chicken suffer from psychological injury?
-Was the head still attached?
-what is the weather like?
-wind direction?

@sly ...the question is really "why" not "how, and all the variables..." but I agree with you, it depends...:))

-An animal reacts in an impulsive way, they live in-the-moment.

-Impulses can be predicted based on the variables in-effect in the current situation,

This leads to the conclusion that we need more DATA, in order to accurately tell what made the chicken cross the road.

If we know what the variables are, and we are able to factor them in a sense of, how much of a role does each variable play, we can pinpoint the ''why''.

Why did the chicken cross the road? Because it was there, that's why.

I don't think Tweety Bird is gonna be enough for all of them. That's gonna be one big letdown, unless they got Daffy in the oven.

Why do you think that the fabrication of data will help me make up my mind? Practically speaking, field research to gather statistical data on chickens crossing roads is somewhat pretentious. Considering the lack of resources and the nature of the question, it is near-impossible to answer this question without in-depth knowledge of neurological functions of a chicken. Knowledge we currently do not possess.

@GnothiSeauton ...Indeed, it all depends on one's frame of reference!

I also read somewhere, that a potential answer could be: "It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees."

I am not interested in the movement actions of chickens. I have more important things to consider.

^^ this has been my answer since childhood.

The more dangerous the road, the more likely the chicken has of reaching the other side ;)
