If A Tree Falls In The Woods . . .

. . .does it still make a noise if you're not there to hear it falling?

Yes. I think so. Yes. Indeed. Of course. When you are walking into the woods, do the sounds of birds chirping and creeks girgling and leaves rustling just start spontaneously as you walk up to them. No. Of course not. In order for you to hear something it must be making noise whether you are there or not.

Just because you are not there to hear it, does not mean the tree doesn't make a noise when it falls.

What do you think?
