The efficiency of nature
Nature is efficient. It doesn't need to bother with things like trees falling in forests where there is nobody to see or hear them fall. Just because you see a fallen tree does not mean it fell, not unless you actually saw it fall. Otherwise, at the moment you perceive the fallen tree, it is created instantaneously in a fallen state. The first step in getting over the hypnosis of objective reality is to stop thinking of it as something independent of the subject, which is you. By definition, every object has to have a subject. And the only subject here is you. Reality is quantum, and what there is, is what you know. If that seems too limited, then know more.
