Sigh... So Sokal's affair hadn't taught you anything. How
unsurprising... Nobody says that Physics 101 gives one all
answers, correct answers or happens to be taught well. BTW,
you might want to continue your education past that - and not
into pseudo-phylosophical handwaving. That might at least
give you an understanding of difference between Zeno's stuff
and QED one and lack of relationship between those beyond the use
of the same word. And no, popular retellings do not count.
And learn real mathematics, please - again, not limited to freshman
courses. It's damn beautiful, beyond and above words. Again,
popular retellings miss that completely.
