The entrance is an illusion

Dear Editor:An ancient philosopher, Parmenides, who existed before Socrates, argued that nothing actually moved and that all motion was an illusion. I read that and wondered how could have Parmenides, who lived more than 2,000 years ago, anticipated the Entrance to Aspen question? God knows that over the years we have seen unlimited movement, pro and con, on that question but no solid results! Was Parmenides correct? It would seem so.Gaylord T. GueninWoody Creek
