The sound of one hand clapping is ... a slap in the face, (or a very faint
sound as fingertips lightly clap one's own palm).

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make
a sound? Yep. As a remote microphone will verify; the production of sound
is not dependent upon the existence of a receiver.

Is the glass half empty or, half full? It is half full since no glass
begins with contents, a glass found to be filled halfway must have had those
contents poured into it rather than emptied out.

How high is 'up'? It is half the distance 'down', times two.

If the speed of light is 186000 miles per second squared, what is the speed
of 'dark'?

Upon due consideration, the speed of dark would be half the speed of light
times two.
