We all know the old philosophical adage, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Perhaps another thing to ponder here is whether or not the vibrations were felt from afar? What would make the tree sadder, not being heard or not being felt?
When we die, do we want the news of our deaths to be heard or felt? A legacy to be proud of is one where the news of our passing resonates with people. How much noise we make when we fall is irrelevant.
