If a tree falls in the woods and you don’t know the species than it might have been a shrub.

If you can’t categorize something it doesn’t exist. If a tree falls in the woods and you don’t know the species than it might have been a shrub. Assuming that was the case there was no tree to be heard. Shrubs really aren’t trees. An orange is an orange not an apple. Without categories and distinction our world would collapse.
So even though philosophy questions everything at times, it must every now and then be categorized. Epistemological philosophy is much deferent than existentialist. Existentialist branch is the most often recognized branch in this day and age. Either way, can you really understand anything without relating it to something? It is this and not that.
I love Kaela because she is a sweet girl and not a mean one, etc.
So the story goes.
Be a philosopher and think. What is the meaning of it all? Why the heck are we here?
