What is your opinion on the origin of "Jane" in the short story -All You Zombies- by Robert A. Heinlein?

Personally I believe that there was, at some point, the 'begining' where the 'origional' Jane was born from normal parents that then started the cycle. Its like a circle with a little tail coming out of it.

This is certainly possible.  After all, there is a lot of time travel involved in the story but at some point there has to have been a beginning.  A female makes sense, since the female was impregnated.
