How is it that eggs cook and keep exactly the same volume inside the shell?

It's yet another proof that G-d created a perfect universe for us.

I thought babies being blown up on Ben Yehudah was proof of the perfect universe.

How do we know they do?  Can one measure the volume of a raw egg without cracking the shell?  Or maybe someone cracked a lot of raw eggs, measured the volume, did the same to a lot of cooked eggs, and the average volume was the same?   Although that would make it hard to say "exactly".

I'm ignorant, why should the volume change?

I don't know if it should or shouldn't change.  But I'd rather know if it does or doesn't before trying to figure out why one or the other happens.

because it is cooking and changing form. Things expand and contract when you cook them.

Besides, when you let the egg develop into a chick it too keeps the same volume. That's pretty cool. Mammals for instance tend to grow bigger as gestation continues.
