In the repetition of AB, for instance, there is nothing in A itself, as Hume famously argued, that connects it to B; it is only by virtue of a change in the mind, a developed habit and expectation, whereby one is led to expect B on the appearance of A. This is an example of the “contemplation,” the change in the mind, that enacts a passive synthesis that is irreducible to the elements themselves; or, as Deleuze argues, it is a relation that is external to the terms while not being separate or separable from these terms.

Peirce counters Zeno’s paradox as follows: All the arguments of Zeno depend on supposing that a continuum has ultimate parts. But a continuum is precisely that, every part of which has parts, in the same sense. Hence he makes out his contradictions only by making a self-contradictory supposition. 4 Zeno’s mistake was thus twofold.

On the one hand, it says that there are indeed ultimate or final terms that can no longer be divided—thus it is against the indefinite; but on the other hand, it says that these ultimate terms go to infinity—thus they are not atoms but rather terms that are ‘infinitely small,’ or as Newton would say ‘vanishing terms’ ” (Smith 2012, 249).
