Obviously we've reached a stalemate. We can't agree on the definition of sound, therefore we cannot argue productively any further.
You've hit the nail on the head, Kingkool. I learned long ago that it is fruitless trying to get people to understand that common definitions don't include that big picture necessary for those definitions to even be meaningful. For whatever it's worth, you are correct in my book. No ear to convert compressed airwaves into auditory nerve impulses? Then no sound. No mind to interpret the nerve impulses? Then no sound.
But if you want to continue trying to reach the kind of entity who calls Schrodinger's Cat (one of the most seminal metaphors in quantum mechanics), "too stupid to contemplate," I leave you to it. Good luck.
