Synopsis: Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea argued that it is impossible to traverse a path of given distance because such a path is comprised of an infinite series of half-distances. Since performing an infinite number of tasks is impossible, the path cannot be traversed. Zeno’s paradox is an example of an ill-defined problem, founded on mixed dimensions. Trinitarian theology is similarly ill-defined and embroiled in a dimensional quagmire.
