If a Tree Falls in the Middle of the Forest…

…yes, it makes a sound.

Why?

The theory that sound needs to be heard in order to exist is completely inaccurate. Hearing is a sense, like taste, touch, scent and sight. Saying that something doesn’t make a sound because no one is there to hear it is as absurd as saying there the fall reflects no light because no one is there to see it, or there is no fall because no one is there to feel the vibrations.
