Zeno's Paradox

Zeno's Paradox states that when you are moving forward, you must arrive at the halfway stage before reaching your goal.

As an example, let's say you are walking to your car. Before you get there, you must be halfway there. At that point, you continue to move toward the car, but now you will reach a halfway point again.

And again. And again.

In Zeno's Paradox, you would travel, one-half, one-fourth, one-eighth, one-sixteenth...and so on.

Or, in other words, theoretically, you would never arrive at your car because you will always have to move halfway from point to point.

Well, that doesn't happen, does it? You have probably walked to your car perfectly fine this morning.

That's because Zeno's Paradox does not take into account an important factor: time.

Time is not made of indivisible moments.

Now is now. It cannot be divided.

And that's a very good thing.

When we move toward our goals, we are in 'now.'

And great things happen then.

So, go write your life story.
