While I am uncertain of the possibility of singularities I would like to offer this proposition. Let us consider Zeno's Paradox, the method of which yours is similar. In order for an object to travel from point A to point B it first must complete half the distance. Before it can complete half the total distance it must first complete half of the half. Due to an infinite amount of halves the object can never arrive at it's final destination, nor is it even able to begin its journey. How could an infinite amount of halves be covered in a finite amount of time? Ergo motion is impossible and change merely an illusion. Rather than deny common sense and yeild to Zeno's perposterous conclusions, perhaps we should question the logic that supports it.
