When trees fall they make a sound
Humans can hear sounds
/Human can hear a tree fall
“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear, does it make a sound?” is a classic philosophical thought experiment. It is use to raise questions about reality and observation. This question all started from the philosopher George Berkeley in his work called “A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge”.
The format of this would be:
X makes Y
Z hears Y
/Z hears X
Everything has and/or makes a sound, it doesn’t matter if there someone is there or not to hear it. This argument is valid but is it factually correct? Sort of in my opinion. It’s not factually correct because if no one is there to hear it, how would they know if it fell in the first place. On the other hand, like I said before everything makes a sound. The real question was that does a tree make a sound when it falls, it didn’t matter if no one is there to hear it still makes a sound. I would say yes to the question but the argument itself isn’t factually correct. Some people is the world who can’t hear so how would they hear it fall. Other people may think differently, on the Wikipedia page it shows the other people opinions and perspective. In the end, the argument is valid but not factually correct in my opinion, which makes this not sound.
