Zeno's Paradoxes, I would suggest, are not concerned with proving that
Achilles can never overtake the tortoise but rather confront the
thinker with the reality of conscious thinking.

There are many examples.

There are Zen and Sufi exercises.  A film by Almodovar or Campion or
theatre by Lemi Ponifasio or Antonin Artaud, does something similar.

Likewise as Derrida so lucidly demonstrated, it is possible to use
words to deconstruct our wordy world, and the illusions we feed

It may be that we are moving to a more co-operative phase regarding
relations between Maori and non-Maori.  Or maybe not.

There can be no doubt that the Maori who are reclaiming the land that
was taken from them are a different tribe from the Maori who their
land taken away.
