What fusses me is that in all of this discussion about half-full glasses
there is not reference to
the person(s) who perceive(s) the glass to be half-full: a tree falling
in a forest where there are
no witnesses makes no sound.
Now, in my experience as a Philosophy graduate; a half full wine glass
the involvement of a partially sated wine-bibber.
What we really need to consider here is how many half-glasses have to be
imbibed before the
wine-bibber is unable to tell whether the glass in front of him/her is
full, half-full, empty, broken
on the floor, rolled under the table, or morphed into a frog that has
then winked in a highly
satirical fashion at the wine-bibber!
