In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

rhetorical questions

Recently I had an exam in this class, psychology of marketing. At the end of the exam, there were a couple of questions that were not related to the exam. The teacher justed wanted to know our viewpoint.
They are the kind of thought provoking questions inwhich the answer is subjective.

The first one was, 'if an author writes on a certain page that this page is blank, is the page still blank or not?'

The second one was about how do you prove to yourself whether you are dreaming or awake?

These remind me of that rhetorical question that many have heard, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?'' To me, this is not a good example. If you think about it, the sound waves are still there, whether someone is there or not. It doesn't disappear because nobody is there to listen. That's my thought anyhow

Reminds me of a line from a movie where one asks another the Zen question how do you clap with one hand and the answer was making a fist.

with regards to the first question, i would say no, its not a blank page as the author already expressed something on it.

I answered the same thing on the exam that the page is not blank anymore.
