Can Eggs Survive This?

Classical Mechanics Level 1

We know that eggs are very delicate and break on the application of a very feeble force.

Now, imagine 64 eggs placed between two sheets of glass(they are placed at equal distances, forming a square, as seen in the image), and are subjected to a downward force of 70 pounds.

It's amazing though that they don't break (the reason why they won't break can be found out by solving this).

Now, why don't they break?
