A Conversation for Zeno's Paradox
ninepointfour Started conversation Sep 9, 2005
One false assumption required by Xeno to create the achilles and tortoise paradox is that an infinite number of things canot add up to a finite number. If you have to cross a room you do cover 50% of the distance then 50% of the remaining distance and so on.
0.3 recurring is an example of an infinite number of things (3/10 + 3/100 + 3/1000...) that adds up to a finite number (a third).
