Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK, my 2 cents... Seems to me that the only difference between the 2 scenarios is presence or not of persons, nothing else has changed. Therefore what was "heard" when people were present is still there whether or not people are present. How people hear something is irrelevant to the existence question.
