Banana

When a tree falls in the middle of the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Well, if the definition of sound is purely scientific, then sure. But that’s a very boring way of looking at it. Because our everyday understanding of sound is based on our own perceptions. We only experience sounds when we are near enough to hear them. And if no one is there to experience the sound, what is the point of that sound? The world may exist independent of us, but if it did, we would never know about the world, or what things sound like, etc. And even if someone stumbles across the fallen tree after the fact, the sound, if there really was any, is never part of human experience. And all we have is human experience, right?

MM loves bananas. I’m weird.
