No, it's more than just playing with words...

Re: I have thought about it and so have others (dogrock)

Surely its playing with the meaning of speech. But these questions make a person think about what they're talking about.

Well, maybe. Here's another take

Actually, even the tree-in-the-forest question assumes that we can know what took place in the absence of an observer. How do we know a tree fell at all? If we're prepared to say our act of observing determines whether sound exists, why not say that the forest itself exists only because we observe it?
