If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it really make a sound?
I never understood that question.
If the tree falls, it creates sound waves. If no one is around to hear it, the physics of the event does not change. I just don't get why this is considered a recondite philosophical question.
Well, if we examine the same question at the particle level with quantum physics, it could be argued that the answer is indeterminate or chaotic, due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
Why can't you ever take my side?
