"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
Have you ever pondered that question, relative to any given object, sense, or feeling?
Philosopher George Berkeley proposed once that objects of sense exist only when they are perceived.
Visual and auditory hallucinations exist to one. Another who sees or hears them is able to validate them. Does that alone make the hallucinations real?
If a secret is kept quiet after whispering it with but one, is that secret not contained to those two?
I light a candle with you in a room with no windows. We leave the room and tell no one. Who is to know it keeps burning?
I have held his hand secretly in that room with the candle.
He loves me quietly and acknowledges that love to no one else but me. Does a relationship exist?
Just how strong is YOUR faith?
