Calculus and Zeno's Paradoxes
For Immediate Release
For nearly twenty-five hundred years scientists, mathematicians,
and philosophers have been trying to solve Zeno's paradoxes.
Finally, after all this time, two of the more popular paradoxes
have been solved.
John Northern, a
scientist and philosopher, has solved two of the more popular of
Zeno's paradoxes, which no one thought would ever be solved. In
the ancient past Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle tried to solve
the paradoxes without success. In modern times, there are those
who believe that calculus has solved the paradoxes, but in this
essay, John Northern explains why calculus has not solved them,
and indeed brings us no closer to the solutions than any other
method used during all these years.
As shown in the
essay, the convergence of an infinite series on a finite number
does not properly resolve the aspect of infinity in the
paradoxes. Why calculus does not work is explained in layman's
terms so that anyone reading the essay might understand.
Later in the
essay, John Northern explains that to solve the paradoxes, two
new phrases had to be created: "Ispace" and "Tspace." Ispace is
non-dimensional, imaginary space. And Tspace is three
dimensional reality where all things real exist. These terms
have proven to be essential for solving the paradox.
To read the
description of Zeno's Paradoxes, and to find out why calculus
does not unravel the issues; to find out more about the new
terms, and to discover how the paradoxes were solved, you can
peruse the essay written by John Northern at johnnorthern.com.
The essay is short, approximately twenty-five hundred words, and
it is easy to read. There are no complicated scientific nor
mathematical expressions involved. Click on Zeno in the left
