I believe the argument here is something like this (in my words):

Whenever the arrow covers half the distance to the apple the other half

is always left to be covered; this is an unending process. Similarly,

whenever Achilles has reached any position of the tortoise the tortoise

has moved ahead by some distance.

If it was just a matter of adding an infinite series into a finite

number, these Paradoxes will not have the kind of notoriety as they do;

they would not have boggled the minds of geniuses over centuries. I am

sure the solution lies far beyond just adding an infinite series. IMHO
