Abstract:
In the 5th century BC Zeno proposed his famous motion paradoxes. These paradoxes denied the reality of the motion and therefore of the time itself. In the 20th century AD the Relativity Theory of Einstein opened the way not only to the thesis of the relativity of time with respect to different inertial systems, but also to the thesis of the relativity of simultaneity. However the experimented entanglement introduces the possibility, for the subatomic particles, to be connected, and in a certain sense to communicate, instantly at any distance, thus implying an absolute synchronicity. In this paper after a discussion on two of the Zeno’s motion paradoxes (the “Achilles” and the “Arrow”) and after presenting two possible solutions for the two paradoxes, the issue of the relativity of synchronicity will be addressed, showing that a universal time, even if a quite complex universal time, can exist.
