we did acknowledge suffering by observing the suffering of the chick...but like buddha also teaches, is how to overcome or remove suffering from ones own life....its a question that we in psychology like to call self reflective questioning....so yeah ...suffering...there is no solution ...this question is meant to see how others "operate" by seeing how they solve the question lol

To answer the original riddle...you wait for the chicken to break itself out of the bottle the same way it broke itself out of the egg. The lesson being that only the individual can achieve enlightenment, you can't do it for them, even if you are the one who put them in the prison to begin with.

The whole point about the chicken-in-the-bottle koan is that there is no solution and the zen master is exemplifying that some things in life cannot be overcome, like death or chicken in the bottle.

On the other hand he is also exploring that if you don't want to die then don't be born or if you want the chicken to live don't let it be born in a death trap.
