*Infinite Divisibility *by Yves Tanguy, 1942

anonymous asked:

A runner wants to run 100 meters in a finite time, but to reach the 100 meter mark, the runner must first reach the 50 meter mark, but the runner must first run 25 meters, but to do that, they must first run 12.5 meters. Since space is infinitely divisible, we can repeat these requirements forever, thus the runner has to reach an infinite number of midpoints in a finite time. This is impossible, so the runner can never reach his goal. Where does this paradox lead and why?
