Anyone with a little bit of math expertise can easily debunk that "paradoxon", though. :) Both the distance and duration of each iteration approach zero, so for an infinite amount of time the duration of each iteration becomes infinitely short. In fact, the duration of the iterations decreases so quickly that even an infinite amount of these infinitely short timespans only adds up to a finite amount of time.

Makeshifts last the longest.
