Achilles and a turtle

92-Achilles i żółw  I Frame Zenon: DON'T YOU GET IT? OK. ONCE AGAIN. LET'S SAY THAT ACHILLES IS IN A FOOTRACE WITH A TURTLE. BUT AS ACHILLES IS TWO TIMES FASTER THAN A TURTLE,  HE START RUNNING  WHEN THE TURTLE IS IN THE HALF WAY...  II Frame Zenon: AND NOW CONCENTRATE...ACHILLES CHASES A TURTLE...BUT WHEN HE REACHES ½ OF THE RACE IN THIS TIME THE TURTLE REACHES NEXT ¼ , AND WHEN ACHILLES REACHES NEXT ¼ , THEN TURTLE IS AWAY FROM HIM NEXT 1/8 OF THE RACE AND SO ON. AND THAT'S WHY ACHILLES WILL NEVER CATCH UP THE TURTLE. DO YOU NOW UNDERSTAND? Sokrates: ZENON IT'S BETTER WHEN YOU STOP.  III Frame Kant: ...HOWEVER YOU OVERTOOK THIS CAR BREAKING THE RULES... Zenon irritated: BUT MR OFFICER, HOW COULD I'VE OVERTAKEN THIS CAR, WHEN I COULDN'T EVEN CATCH IT UP? HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS?  Starring: Immanuel Kant, Socrates, Zenon of Elea
Starring: Immanuel Kant, Socrates, Zeno of Elea


Definitely, this time Zeno is right, a movement is only an illusion,
