The argument the author proposes doesn't really solve Zeno's paradox. "We know that the distance is finite" is not a true statement; it is a non-evidentiary assumption, based on appearance in consciousness. Seeing outside consciousness is impossible. Probably Nobel quantum physicists Max Planck & Erwin Schrodinger would defend Zeno's simple paradox? They were both convinced that consciousness itself is the matrix for space/time/world - i.e., multiplicity is an illusion in consciousness or mind? So, imho, Zeno lives!
