This is one of Zeno's paradoxes. Specifically, "That which is in locomotion must arrive at the half-way stage before it arrives at the goal."

Now lets pull out the big guns.
In Peter Lynds paper, "Time and Classical and Quantum Mechanics: Indeterminacy vs. Continuity," it is postulated there is not a precise static
instant in time underlying a dynamical physical process at which the relative position of a body in relative motion or a specific physical magnitude
would theoretically be precisely determined. It is concluded it is exactly because of this that time (relative interval as indicated by a clock) and
the continuity of a physical process is possible, with there being a necessary trade off of all precisely determined physical values at a time, for
their continuity through time. This explanation is also shown to be the correct solution to the motion and infinity paradoxes, excluding the Stadium,
originally conceived by the ancient Greek mathematician Zeno of Elea. Quantum Cosmology, Imaginary Time and Chronons are also then discussed, with the
latter two appearing to be superseded on a theoretical basis.
In other words reality is merely sequences of events that happen relative to one another; time is an illusion.
Since this solves the statement you presented above how do you contradict Mr. Lynds paper? Please give a rigorous analysis, using classical or quantum
physics in your discussion.
Spheres are eternally infinite in size and can be cut into half or doubled in size infinitely with no end.
Actually a sphere is a constrained volume.
Basic high-school math people:
Using the sort of facile logic presented above it could also be said a cube is infinite in size and can be cut in half or doubled infinitely with no
So why not just say, "a volume of any shape or size can be multiplied or divided infinitely?"
Consciousness and intelligence of an individual is the same as a sphere and can be infinitely doubled or cut in half with no end.
How do you account for the paradox of life being limited in length and therefore intelligence thus being finite?
There are unseen energies forces necessary for advancement that are adversaries to the positive as negative pushes against positive this allows
the process of advancement to occur.
Unseen does not mean undetectable. How do we go about detecting this "energy."
What will happen in October of 2011, a brown dwarf star yet to be seen in this dimension/time will intersect from a parallel time/dimension
passing your sun causing change.
Please give the exact solar coordinates of this brown dwarf in our dimension. Also please provide an algorithm to translate the movement of this body
in the other dimension as it relates to geocentric positioning in our solar system, so we can continue to track its position.
Failing to answer the above question, it's safe to assume you're a con-man and this thread should be closed.
