an old story, by the Greek philosopher Zeno, about a race between Achilles and a tortoise.
Achiles could run very fast , while the tortoise is an extremely slow animal. In fact,
Achilles could run ten times as fast as the tortoise. So he decided to give the tortoise
some help: he let him start ten metres ahead.
As soon as he heard the gun, Achilles started sprinting at top speed. The tortoise started sprinting too, but not quite so fast. I ll catch him in no time, thought Achilles and ran very fast. He was about to catch the tortoise. He was only a centimetre far from the tortoise. But he never caught him. (adapted)
