“After the death of Archimedes in 212 BCE, the topic of motion was effectively abandoned; it did not resurface for another 1,400 years, when Gerard of Brussels revived the mathematical works of Euclid and Archimedes and came very close to defining speed as a ratio of distance to time.”
Joseph Mazur, Zeno's Paradox: Unraveling the Ancient Mystery Behind the Science of Space and Time

“Time dilation, inconstancy of mass, and special relativity suggest that motion is indeed illusory.”
Joseph Mazur, Zeno's Paradox: Unraveling the Ancient Mystery Behind the Science of Space and Time

“And our understanding of that motion remains fundamentally paradoxical.”
Joseph Mazur, Zeno's Paradox: Unraveling the Ancient Mystery Behind the Science of Space and Time
