I perceive the absence of the necessary constiuent parameters to define 'threadness', but if more answers keep being posted, 'existence' will explicitly overlay the very non-existence first posited, and thus be subsumed under even ambiguous referential concepts. Look what happened to Descartes when he tried to attain self-referential relationship with 'being'!

I always wondered, Hesp, about the very anthropocentric presuppositions of the classic falling-tree philosophical conundrum. Are "sounds" only those vibrations heard by humans?

Not being a scientist, I could only give you the truth. *g*

If a bird sings in the forest, he or she will of course, hear the sound. Therefore there is someone there to hear it.

The very quetion "if a tree falss..." bla bla bla, assumes that there can be a situation where a tree falls without someone or *something* hearing it.

The tree thing is an example of a language/definition problem....when I was in college, we had an example in, I believe, "Pragmatism" by Will James....

He told of once being on a camping trip wtih several men, and returning to camp to find them arguing about a squirrel on a tree, whic was trying, as squirrels do, to not be seen and to hide from the men on the other side of the tree.....so, the guys were were arguing about whether , by trying to see the squirrel and running in circles around the tree, they were also going 'around' the squirrel, who was usually fast enough to be always facing them.

So James said it was simply a matter of deciding what YOU meant by 'around'...if you wanted to CALL it 'around' when you had been to N,S,E & W of the squirrel, then sure...if you wanted 'around' to mean ONLY getting behind the squirrel, then no.....

And the tree noise is similar....if all you mean by sound is whether vibrations were caused in the earth and air, sure...if you **MEAN** by sound, is those vibrations being picked up by a human eardrum and transmitted to a brain and interpretated and such...then no......

very many 'hard' questions are dealt with by just asking the question a bit differently

If a man says something in the forest and there's no woman there to hear him, is he still wrong?
Or to put it another way, is there ever a time in a man/woman relationship where the man is right?

Troll ref your question: in my experience, regardless of whether a woman is present, the man is always wrong. My wife keeps reminding me that, if anything goes wrong, it is bound to be my fault. Having discussed this matter at some length with my colleagues, they are in full agreement, and experience the same reactions. Take me back to the days of James Brown when it was a man's, man's world.

There is so much not to talk about on this thread that I hardly know where to stop...

"Vulcan scientish Kiri-kin-tha's 1st Law of Metaphysics: "Nothing unreal exists".

Kiri-kin-tha is unreal. Therefore, he is bringing into question his own existence by positing the above law.

The question is: Does "nothing" exist? Is "nothing" something? If it isn't, then how can we discuss it? If nothing is the alternative to something, which seems pretty straightforward, then something must be the alternative to nothing, therefore nothing must exist because otherwise it wouldn't be there so that something could be its alternative.

And where is "here"? The Incredible Hulk asked that question once, and never got a credible answer from anyone.

I don't think I've said enough.

Hello.
