think hard about change, and you may reach some pretty strange conclusions. inancient greece, for example,
zeno of elea
thought about change and convinced himself that
motion is impossible.
he reasoned like so:motion is a change ofposition over time.at any
nochange of position takes place. therefore, therecan be
at any instant. therefore,motion
takes place!but time is asuccession ofinstants.
howdid I get over here?
