Sound is the absence of Silence. Silence is the absence of Sound. Two sides, same coin. Can a sound impact silence, can silence impact sound? If either are true then both must be true. If either is true in the present that they must be true in the past and future. A future sound can impact a past silence. In the same way as time and being behave as described in Dogen's Uji (Time-Being)
Both sound and silence together happen in the whole universe now. When and where else could they?
Don't think sound becomes silence nor that silence become sound. There is no before and no after.
Hope you have an awesome day!
