    I'm sorry but I can't help you because this goes towards philosophy and whatnot. I don't think @Abhisar can help either but maybe @nincompoop can help ?

    As I understand it, this guys paradox is that motion is nothing but an illusion so Achilles can never catch up to the tortoise because first he has to get halfway to the tortoise. And to get halfway to the tortoise, he first has to get halfway to the halfway point. And to get halfway to the halfway point, first he has to get halfway to halfway to the halfway point .. and so on..
