This being said the answer still needs to be conditional and.
Jun 30, “If a tree falls in a forest ” and quantum mechanics. by ippolit Published June 30, Updated November 12, ‘If a tree falls in a forest and absolutely nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?’ – This question has been asked quite a few times over the bushlopping.barted Reading Time: 5 mins. Feb 14, The answer is relatively simple. Sound is a function of hearing. When the tree falls it sets up vibrations in the air. If those vibrations reach an ear they’re interpreted by the brain as sound.
Sound is dependent on perception. The tree and forest exist regardless of being perceived. Sound, on the other hand, exists ONLY if bushlopping.barted Reading Time: 7 mins. Sep 24, However, if a conscious observer is in the woods then there will be sound because he or she will observe the tree falling and collapse its state down to the fallen state.
24 SepTherefore, there is in fact no such thing as Quantum Mechanical Reality without an observer. the standing tree- alive or dead- to decay and hollow out, providing important habitat for bears, swifts, woodpeckers, and many other animals. Eventually the roots relinquish their hold on the trunk, or the trunk snaps, and the tree falls to the forest floor. Insects, fungi, and weather continue the decay process. TheAuthor: Jonathan.

Oct 24, In terms of a tree in the forest, you can reasonably say that the tree was in a"Schrodinger's Tree" state until you entered the forest and peeked at it. But you can just as reasonably say that when the tree fell, the ground measured its position, and so on, and so on, and by the time you finally peaked at it, you simply saw an already collapsed quantum system.
