Name: Richard Who is asking: Student Level: All Question:
In order to transverse from point A to point B one must first cross the halfway point (C). Additionally....One must also pass another halfway point labeled (D) in order to get to the halfway point of (C). There is also point (E) which is the halfway point between A and D. We have to assume that there are an infinite amount of halfway points points between (A) and (B). My understanding of infinity is something that goes on forever. But how can one expect to traverse over infinity in a finite amount of time? Will we never reach (B)? Hi Richard,
It is true that this LIST is infinite. Any effort to write it
all down, with a fixed time for each recording of a position
will take for ever.
