    Default If a tree falls V2.0

    If a tree falls and no one is around to here it does it make a sound?

    no its just a vibration.... the bones in the human ear process vibrations into sound.

    If you dont believe me then post your own answers.

    I agree. A sound is just moving air particles until those particles go into an ear.

    It's not a sound if it isn't heard...and animals count o.O; so it makes a sound I'm just not aware of it. x.x;

    no idea how i'm going to say this because it my jumbled thoughts are confusing me, but here i go:

    lets do some math:
    tree falling = vibration
    vibration + ear = sound
    vibration = sound - ear
    tree falling = sound -ear
    falling tree = vibration

    it is circular. there is no correct answer because although the vibration is made into sounds by the human ear, the same works for animal, insects, and such, so they would hear the sound even if a human were not there. And, because the vibration is the sound, as long as the vibration exists, it is a sound. Although the vibration may not be being used by a creatures ears in order to indicate the sound to that creature, the vibrations are still there. In the case of a nothing being around the tree as it fell, it could be assumed that a sound was made but not used, or rather, it is a sound waiting to happen.

    Technically, a sound is when those vibrations touch the ear, it's not a sound until then. And he also said "no one's around to hear it" which implies no animals.

    God, I love this thread. lol

    Then it didn't make a sound, for it to be a 'sound' it must be heard by something or another.
