    I doubt it's related to biology.

    Lol, my AP biology teacher and the class were going over it and I wanted a better description than hat my teacher and the actual internet has to say about it @Abhisar so I was wondering if you could help me out on this one?

    I am afraid because it's a philosophical theory and i have no idea about it ;-;

    Do you think if I gave you a description of what I already know, you could expand on it?

    ok so what I know already is that basically wherever you are trying to go...you will never reach your destination because in that moment of time and place you will always only be halfway there.

    Well I believe that since you are walking and mainly you will never reach because you will always only be halfway there how did he come up like that....thats like making a dot then saying that even when you are stepping on it , you have never reached it because you will always only be halfway there. Or when you go to bed, you have never really made it to your bed even when you are laying in it because you will always only be halfway there.

    Zeno's paradox is the set of philosophical questions/problems thought to be set by the Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea. Hopefully this helps

    Zeno's paradoxes are a set of philosophical problems generally thought to have been devised by Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea (ca. 490–430 BC) to support Parmenides's doctrine that contrary to the evidence of one's senses, the belief in plurality and change is mistaken, and in particular that motion is nothing but an illusion. It is usually assumed, based on Plato's Parmenides (128a–d), that Zeno took on the project of creating these paradoxes because other philosophers had created paradoxes against Parmenides's view. Thus Plato has Zeno say the purpose of the paradoxes "is to show that their hypothesis that existences are many, if properly followed up, leads to still more absurd results than the hypothesis that they are one." (Parmenides 128d). Plato has Socrates claim that Zeno and Parmenides were essentially arguing exactly the same point (Parmenides
