Surely Henrietta Maria, the teenaged daughter of le Roi de France, Henri IV, was happy to marry sweet-smelling King Charles I of England to escape the strong scent of her dear daddy. Surely it burned her eyes. Remember he was reported to have smelled like a corpse (cadavre).
However, she returned to Daddy in France when her husband, the king, was killed and civil war broke out in Merry ol' England. She finally had an opportunity to escape the strong scent of her daddy again when Oliver Cromwell died and his son did not wish to continue in his father's footsteps. She returned to England with her son who became King Charles II. So-called royals have such fun and excitement.
Question to confound your flower peers: You have heard about a tree falling in the woods and folks are asked if there were no persons around would there have been any noise (or sound). Here is a similar, smelly question. If a corpse flower is in full bloom and radiating smell particles into the air and no one, and no other creatures, is around to smell it does it stink?
The answer comes from Galileo Galilei himself. He essentially said that sounds, odours, tastes, colors, etc. are found in consciousness alone. If all living creatures where not present, all these qualities would be wiped away, annihilated. The answer to such questions would be NO.
You see it takes ears, or organs of hearing, to hear a tree fall. It takes a nose to interpret smell particles as a scent, etc.
Now, back to the tree in the woods question. The writer was asked this question several years to which he inquired concerning a definition of the word "sound." This aggravated the questioner. Then this writer said that there could, indeed, be a sound for it may cause a rabbit or other animal to be startled and it may jump or run in fear. The questioner said that there was no one in the woods. He did not mention other creatures. Notice that Galileo Galilei eliminated ALL creatures in his statement.
This was not the simple response the questioner wished for. He should have know better than to ask the Trivia Master who will analyze the question before answering.
