No, the purpose of that setup is to give you movable control in post. You freeze the action while the angle continues to change as an array of cameras capture each angle independently. (You basically create a video panorama.)

Dollying around the actor won't stop time.

I'm not sure what you meant but the wheel was one of mans very first inventions in the BC era.
I wouldn't call a dolly a vast improvement of technology.

You say some shocking things, Quality.

Back then "bullet time" was done with multiple cameras. Now it's
done with multiple cameras NOT a dolly. As mussonman points out,
bullet time freezes time. A dolly move around a subject will not do
that. Those are two, very different, things and not an example of how
technology vastly improves over time.
