60-Second Adventures in Thought (combined)

Can a cat be both alive and dead? Can a computer think? How does a tortoise beat Achilles in a race?

Subjects as vast as time travel, infinity, quantum mechanics and artificial intelligence, are squeezed into 60-second clips that will tickle your funny bone and blow your mind.
