The paper seems that it is about Zeno paradox. I think

that I have read some popular article about solution of Zeno paradox

in terms of infitesimal numbers for year or so ago.

The introduction of infinite primes forces automatically also the

introduction of infinitesimals. All predictions of the

p-adicized quantum TGD for infinite p:s would be series containing also

powers of infinitesimals and only the finite part is interesting from our

point of view: two lowest orders in pinary expansion would give the exact

result.

It seems that the testing of our theories with accuracy of

infinitesimals is a rather remote possibility: and perhaps un-necessary:

we cannot even agree on basic philosophy! Perhaps those God like

creatures in the hierarchy of selves, which are labelled by infinite

primes, are busily constructing physical models in accuracy

O((1/infinite P)^n) and performing the needed high resolution

experimentation and reporting various errors using infinitesimals(;-).
