in physics if you are applying the gas pedal in an automobile you are accelerating in the + direction, reversely if you apply the breake you are accelerating in the negative direction. so perhaps the act of being quite is just decresing sound frequency hz

silence is a sound because it's when you hear nothing, but usually if you stay in a room of silence, your ears will start to ring first of all. second, wikipedia is just a thing that other people make up and you shouldn't keep in mind.

silence is the absence of ambient audible sound, the emission of sounds of such low intensity that they do not draw attention to themselves, or the state of having ceased to produce sounds; this latter sense can be extended to apply to the cessation.

no, it's not. silence is not a sound. silence is defined by the absence of sound. sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. there is no sound at all in outer space, since there is no medium that can sustain its propagation.

it depends on how edgy you wanna be. in a poetic sense, say things like "silence is the loudest sound" or "the silence spoke louder than words." it makes a perfect metaphor, but in a literal sense, silence is the opposite of sound, and true silence can only be found in a silence chamber or in a vacuum.

silence is the absence of ambient audible sound, the emission of sounds of such low intensity that they do not draw attention to themselves, or the state of having ceased to produce sounds; this latter sense can be extended to apply to the cessation or absence of any form of communication, whether through speech or

other medium.sometimes speakers fall silent when they hesitate in searching for a word, or interrupt themselves before correcting themselves. discourse analysis shows that people use brief silences to mark the boundaries of prosodic units, in turn-taking, or as reactive tokens, e.g., as a sign of displeasure, disagreement, embarrassment, desire to think, confusion, and the like. relatively prolonged intervals of silence can be used in rituals; in some religious disciplines, people maintain silence for protracted periods, or even for the rest of their lives, as an ascetic means of spiritual transformation.
