Many of you will know that Zeno of Elea created one of the first and most perduring paradoxes of all. If any of you think you have solved it..............you ARE wrong. sorry. But you can try it:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Imagin you want to fo from here to there and th distance is one meter (it works with any distance and directiona and speed), you walk, and get their. but, no. First of all, to get to the other place you have to go thorugh the whole meter, but before the whole meter, you have to cross half of it. Now you are in the middle. Then, you have to go forward, but before crossign the half you have to, you cross the half of that half. Then the half of that half. And the half of that, and that one two....... But, no. Because before getting to the half, you have to get to the half of the first half, but before to it's half, and before to it's half, and so on.

So in actual fact, you can't move, so motion does not exist, so time does not exist.

I proved mine, (well, Zeno did) now someone has to disprove.
