1.Every thing creates a sound so the tree hitting the floor creates sound waves but if nobody hears them do they exist.So does anything exist out of
our conscience mind.
2.Or everything that is out of your existence at that moment isnt real atall and doesnt exist so the woods that the tree doesnt exist the grass
surrounding the tree doesnt exist and the tree itself doesnt exist so even though it fell it never fell cause it doesnt exist.
3.It does exist because it left a hole in the ground and branches everywhere but you never saw the tree fall so your mind created the branches and the
hole so therefore the tree doesnt exist but your mind created an excuse for the hole in the ground so to you the tree exists but to the universe it
4.The tree exists no matter what the hole in the ground and the branches everywhere is proof that the tree fell end of story.
Which is more likely
Well let us take a journey into the mystical realms of common sense.
The question is, if a tree falls and nobody's around to hear it, did it just happen.
Well first, we established a scenario where an existing object falls.
The question is if an established event happened, what would you think the answer is?
Yes, the tree fell, it doesn't matter if it fell on the moon, it fell, because the question is not if something falls does it make a sound, the
question is questioning the very existance of such a thing that has actually been established by the contents of the question.
Simply put, Yes, the tree fell, did it make a sound? I don't know, where is the tree?
