Zeno of Elea

“…he purpose of the arguments was a defense of his teacher’s ideas. Parmenides believed that reality was one, immutable and unchanging. Motion, change, time and plurality were all mere illusions. This, of course, attracted many critics. Zeno’s paradoxes attempted to show that holding the opposite position, that reality was many, was contradictory and absurd. Therefore, “the one” must be the correct philosophy.”

Our eyes see very little and very badly – so people dreamed up the microscope to let them see invisible phenomena; they invented the telescope…now they have perfected the cinecamera to penetrate more deeply into he visible world, to explore and record visual phenomena so that what is happening now, which will have to be taken account of in the future, is not forgotten.
