Get the tree felt it WOULD make a sound

You know the old question "if a tree fell in the forestů" well the answer is yes, it would make a sound IF there were anything around which has ears. It does not have to be a person! The reason for this is that one a tree falls, it makes shockwaves in the air. But it is not a "sound" until the eardrum is hit by this shockwave, and through the functions of the inner ear turns it into an electrical impulse which can be sent to the auditory center in the brain, and there it is interpreted as a sound. It is at that moment which the tree falling, or anything else for that matter, "makes a sound". So if a tree falls and there is no one or nothing around to "hear it" then it would not make a sound. Merely shockwaves in the air. I hope this clears it up for you!

Whew, I will finally be able to get a good night's sleep.
Hmmm, do I snore when I sleep, if I'm not awake to hear it?
Uh oh, that sleeplessness is setting in again.
