IfTis the time line, and ifpis a point onTat whichxstarts, and ifcan only start once, then everything that precedesxponTisnon-x.Non-xnecessarily extends infinitely to the left, because there cannot be a point onTprecedingpthat isx(since we assumed thatxcan only start once). Now, asnon-xextends infinitely to the left,non-xmust be infinite itself, which does not allow for a point at whichxcan start. Conclusion: ifTis the time line, and ifpis a point onTat whichxstarts, and ifxcan only start once, thenxcan never start.

Replacexwithmatter: ifmatterstarted to 'be there' at some moment of time, thenmatternever started to be there.

What's wrong with this kind of reasoning?
