Zeno's Paradox is a common mathematical paradox that states, in various forms, that a person may never fully reach a destination due to them constantly reaching halfway there. For example, A person walking home, which is 1 kilometer away, may reach 500 meters and be halfway there. With 500 meters remaining, he walks 250 meters, which is halfway since then. Continuing farther, he reaches 125 meters, again halfway. This continues infinitely, meaning he can never fully walk 1000 meters. Although it seems the person may never reach his destination, it is, in fact, true that \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{4} + \frac{1}{8} + \frac{1}{16} ... = 1, meaning the journey may be completed.
