I have a degree in economics and have very little background in science or physics but I have been trying to wrap my head around some thoughts tonight. I believe these ideas teeter on the boundary between philosophy and science, but I am hoping there are some widely accepted theories out there to explain. The basic idea is that time and space are theoretically continuous but there seems to be a point where this breaks down. With respect to space and travel, how can an object ever arrive at it's destination when always has to go half way before it can get there? I can stand at a fixed point and watch a ball roll by me, so at what point did the continuity argument fail? If space were truly continuous, every object would have a fixed point in the universe because there is always a finer measurement of distance, so you are essentially stuck where you are. Since that is clearly not the case, there has to be a specific point where continuity of space becomes absolutely irrelevant and the object is able move along and through a fixed point. I realize that this argument might not even make a lot of sense to anyone who reads it and has little application to the real world, but I find it intriguing. The question is essentially the same with respect to time. There is always a finer measurement of time because it is supposedly continuous, but somehow the seconds come and go. At a certain point, and it seems that it would have to be a very specific point, the ability of what we call time to move forward becomes more powerful then the idea of continuity. What we call a second can come and go, but there are infinite levels of measurement ticking away that became irrelevant at some point, but how can they possibly be disregarded if you want to consider continuity in its purest and most infinite sense. It seems that at some point time vanishes and is lost. I have never read about black holes and the theories behind them but maybe that is what I am getting at. Only a certain amount of space and time are perceivable and or able to exist in our universe, and all that is lost becomes a vacuum of nothingness in a place far away. In conclusion, the general idea is that it seems to me like the powers that be in our perception of the world around us are "stronger" than the idea of continuity, even though we are able to conceptualize the infinite nature of a truly continuous existence of time and space.
