Abstract

We relate Zeno's Dichotomy paradox with gravitational red-shift near event horizon in a spherically symmetric space-time. A dictionary of this connection, henceforth called as Zeno-Gravity correspondence, has been built up. The infinite sequence of Zeno's paradox gets mapped to the effect of infinite gravitational red-shift near event horizon and the infinite amount of co-ordinate time the light/particle takes to reach the horizon, starting from a finite distance away from the horizon. Utilizing the dictionary, we elucidate the concept of gravitational red-shift and co-ordinate chart, not covering the whole manifold in a more transparent student-friendly manner without using sophisticated machinery of differential geometry.
