Hmmm, I would say it depends on the height of the tree, and how one defines
the phrase "how far does the apple fall from the tree." Should we count the
striking of the ground as the end of the fall? If the apple seeds manage to
germinate and drop roots, does that constitute a continuation of the fall?
