This reminds me of Zeno's paradox.... How can achilles go from point A to point
C since he must go through point B1, B2 B3... first.. The fact is that Achilles
has, at any point, a velocity vector. At each point, he is "transiting." At
each point he has the perception of movement even though each single point does
not describe a whole trajectory.
