By Ion Soteropoulos

Since the time of the Greek thinker Zeno (fifth century BCE), our school of analytic realizing has did not understand movement during the a while. the reason being the anomaly or contradiction linked to movement. One basic contradiction is the clash among the finite physique and the countless divisibility of the unit distance ab. certainly, how is it attainable to maneuver from a to b if we needs to first go through an unlimited sequence of sub-distances in a single fast? How will we traverse a vast series—a sequence with no limit—yet achieve its restrict?
Because the guts of the matter is the clash among the finite and the endless, its resolution is determined by reconciling this contradiction and remodeling this reconciliation into the founding precept of movement. Having finished those issues, this paintings investigates the sweeping results they've got concerning the geometric kind of the actual universe, the Aristotelian ontology of the actual physique, the character of our finite mind, the finite analytic paradigm of empirical technological know-how and the that means of our technological acceleration.
This publication will entice quite a lot of readers with pursuits within the logical mechanics of the actual universe, the hidden powers of our finite mind, and the application of robots sooner or later. even supposing the various presentation calls for the knowledge of trouble-free mathematical equations, the argument is carried out on the inner most point: that of rules. This technique allows readers to keep on with the book’s reasoning with out technical education at the subject.
