    If I drop a brick on my foot, feel the subsequent pain, is it a fact? Bbarr?

    The OP asks: is it a fact? What is this "it" that's referred to? The brick? The toe? The brain? The pain? The instance of the brick dropping? The subsequentness? The scarcely mentioned "opinion"? The motivation for dropping the brick? The question itself? bbar?

    Opinions are facts. They are just transitory and sometimes insular.

    If an event happens but you don't see it or hear it - did it really happen? Was it a fact?

    If someone else sees it, and I trust them, then I will believe it.

    Does that mean that your trust made it a fact and that without that trust it wasn't a fact?

    What did you mean about 'trusting' and 'believing' making the unseen occurrence a fact then?

    Perhaps the "it" referred, presciently, to this "spawning".
