Meeting 18th March - Marcia Forbes - Literacy

"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

"To say something is meaningful is to say that that is how we arrange it so; how we comprehend it to be, and what is comprehended by you or I may not be by a cat, for example. If a tree falls in a park and there is no-one to hand, it is silent and invisible and nameless. And if we were to vanish, there would be no tree at all; any meaning would vanish along with us. Other than what the cats make of it all, of course." 

yes, it was getting a bit esoteric, so thanks to Mark for stepping in with this photo
