Zeno-Zero

Posted · Add Comment

Zeno’s paradoxes are a set of philosophical / mathematical problems that suggest that change is nothing but an illusion. As described by Aristotle, one of the paradoxes speaks to the impossibility of motion in this manner: That which is in locomotion must arrive at the half-way stage before it arrives at the goal. This is a visual representation of this paradox—where the word “Zeno” slowly approaches “Zero” (by subtly changing the “n” in Zeno to an “r”). The question of course is if “r” ever can completely become “n?”
