The old problem of Aristotle: How can a resting body come to move?
There must be a point of time where rest and movement are
simultaneously realized. But that is impossible.

Concerning mathematics, there is d/2 even for d = 10^-1000000 fm.
Thats facilitated by invention of the system of fractions. But you had
