Replying to I know im not the first to think of this, but.....
This is along the lines of the question "if a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it then does it make any noise?". So if there is no one in the deep woods then does anything there exist? Stay with me for a moment, basically if there are no living creatures in some section of the woods, then what is there? Nothingness? How can we prove there is something there if no one is there to see it? If you set up a video camera and hit record and walk away, then of course it will film the woods, but if nothing is there to record the woods existence then who says theres anything at all? Maybe just out of sight things just stop and there is nothing, just blankness, emptyness. Maybe when you are walking in the woods alone and you blink, everything dissapears for a second, then you open your eyes and it comes back simply because you are seeing it. Maybe things are only there to be seen and when there is no one there to see them they dont exist.
