Suppose I'm to walk on a straight road from A to B: I wear a pedometer, (as well as my sneakers) and set off. The distance (AB) is 100 meter. I come to a place where my pedometer shows 50. "Half of the way", I think and keep going, roughly estimating the remained distance: I'm going to walk half of the remained 50, then half of the remained 25, then half of the remained 12.5, then half of the remained 6.25, …showed first 75 words of 1219 total…

It is something beyond them. That's the merit of our three-dimensional world: If I had to really live within some mathematical system of points and lines, I would never ever arrive at work on time!
