What do you do if you are falling off a cliff?

What You Would Do Scream, pray, worry, or wince for the coming impact (which is almost inevitable). What You Should Do Look for a tree to grab, or a ledge that might interrupt your fall. If you think you might land in water, rather than on rock, angle your body to enter feet first. Otherwise, go limp and don't try to stop when you hit. This could cause more injuries.

What does it mean in philosophy and perceptual psychology to ask 'If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it does it make a sound'?

The question in philosophy and psychology is that while a tree falling "should make" sound, the existence of the sound can depend on its ability to be perceived (now or later).

If you copy and paste this question into Notepad (straight ASCII editor) they show up as 1's, not L's. ...
