My third six-word story. Inspired by Erwin Schrödinger's thought experiment (explained here: [link]
) and that ever-so-famous philosophical question, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one's around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
Say there's a hermit living somewhere, so removed from society that no other human knows about him (this isn't very far-fetched), and suddenly he dies... and no one knows.
Just something to think about.
Also, I'm not saying that I think Schrödinger's experiment is valid (I'd have to have more information before making that assessment - a lot
more). But I still find it interesting.
