Let Me Ask You a Question – 2/20/19


Let me ask you a question…

It is assumed that if a tree falls in the woods, but there is no one around, that it makes a sound.  But how do you really know?

  1. Now it all depends if it falls onto a bed of fluffy cotton wool or falls onto a hard bed of stone. We can test this ourselves or maybe the tree doesn’t cry out unless someone is around to hear it…. oh now I just don’t know.

  2. We (those of us who have spent much time around trees) have witnessed one or more trees fall and heard the sounds, and also seen and heard it in movies. It does seem a safe expectation that the same is true when the fall is not witnessed by a human.

  3. I’m a mom and my kids really answered this age old question for me…No there is no sound if no one is there to hear it <3 I've compared this to motherhood and when my children (all adults now, thank God) make decisions (the sound a tree makes when it's falling) and those decisions are not the best (touching an open flame, you will get burned) and I don't react to there crappy life choices, (the sound), there is no noise. I hope I explained this so people get what I meant. My life is much happier now that I've taken my older sister's advice. "It's not your problem ;)." So no, there is no sound when a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it <3…

      1. then other things heard it. this argument takes into account only human existence when in fact humans are only one extension of nature. we forget about birds who have a sense of hearing as do insects who also feeling moving sensations. just because we can’t communicate with other parts of nature doesn’t mean that they heard or felt nothing.
