Default Motion is mathematically impossible.

Suppose you want to move an object at A from A to B.

So in going from A to B, what's the first point that the object passes through while on the way?

If you decide on some point A1 say, then between A and A1 you can draw a line segment. Between any 2 points a line segment can be drawn. That line segment has a midpoint that lies betwen A and A1.

Therefore the object would have to travel through that midpoint before going through A1. So A1 couldn't be the first point on the way to B.

So it's impossible to say which point is the first one traveled through on the way to B. But there has to be a first one if the object is to move at all. So we have a contradiction.

Motion is impossible.

That's because it's on my steak and it can't be two places at once silly.
