Arrow paradox
« on: January 10, 2015, 01:07:58 PM »

Code: [Select]
Parmenides's doctrine that contrary to the evidence of one's senses, the belief in plurality and change is mistaken, and in particular that motion is nothing but an illusion.
Someone who was around when Zeno lived should have proposed an experiment.

Fire a gun at Zeno and prove for sure that motion is an illusion. :-)

Take care,

Then arrow is motionless when relative with itself but moving when relative with everything else.

You are for example are motionless when relative to yourself, but still even if you lay in bed, the earth is rotating, thus you are moving around it. The earth itself rotates around the sun. And the sun around the center of the galaxy. And who knows where the galaxy is rotating, and if the universe itself is rotating around the center of a multiverse.

I would had said to Zeno that the illusion is motionlessness and not the motion.

I am more concern if mater is an illusion. It all could be energy with different frequencies and amplitudes.
