But the other trees see it fall? And the grass, and the flowers, and the zhrubs. The rabbits see it fall, and the birds, and the squirrels, and the ant
s, and bees.
The poppies saw it fall?

Do you really think so? Iíve wondered if they do. I hope that they do see the tree/poppies. But even if they donít, the Moon sees all, as DT reminded me. Perhaps that is enough, idk?

Thank you for your kind reply Gr3tta

Iím sorry, DT. I appreciate you taking the time to reply, but Iíve read your post several times and yet I canít seem to make out itís meaning. The meaning of the whole seems to be more than the sum of the meaning of each word, and Iím afraid that it eludes me. Youíre going to have to dumb it down for me (ELI5 perhaps!).

However, I was wondering if ďnature has a standard for beautyĒ means that you are saying that only beautiful things are Ďallowedí by nature. If that IS what that sentence means, I donít think you can make that conclusion based on the limited data that is mine and Sometimeís photos. Obviously there IS beauty in nature (or at least, we 3 agree there is beauty in the photographs of nature), but think of all of nature that we DONíT photograph. I could potentially take thousands and thousands of photos each day, and yet I donít. Out of all of the photos that I do take, only a few get put on this site.

I take photos of things that I like because I find them interesting and/or beautiful in some way, which is incredibly subjective. Of the photos that I keep, they convey what my eye saw or I experienced in a fair way, in my subjective experience - it is quite difficult at times to get the camera to capture what the mind experiences, because the technologies of cameras and of eyes and brains are very different. And then I post only those photos which illustrate or convey whatever message I am trying to convey here.

I donít know if that makes sense, or is even in anyway relevant to what your post meant, but there it is...

TheLonelyChemist - Iím not exactly sure what point you were making with your post (sorry!), but respect is clearly something you are struggling with Iím not sure if that is respect from others, or respect for yourself, but usually the two are closely related I hope that you can find a way forward with that.

All the best,

I was trying to tell that, I am afraid people won't respect me no matter what I do. Childhood wounds, probably.

What that post meant was that there's Beauty beyond the observer.

Does a treel falling make noise if anyone isn't around to perceive it?

This suggests if there is beauty in the world even if no one is able to experience it.
