You poor poor things. I was gone for a month, so you have no one to to say philisophical things to keep you nodding wisely.

So! Type what you think is the meaning of life. I'll start.

The meaning of life is to search for it's meaning.

Off you go then.

Yes it does. Sound waves happen whether there is a human there or not.

Although in this particular case, the answer may appear to be obvious, there is a much deeper question as to whether that which cannot be observed (whether directly or indirectly) can actually exist?

After all, if one assumes that that which is unobservable can exist, then one can make arbitrary assumptions about what exists and what does not, for one can only confirm existence through observation, so how can you distinguish between that which really exists and that which does not exist if you remove the need for observation to validate its existence.
