If you insist, here is the first obvious mistake in the paper:

-------------------------------------------
Let S be the set of all real numbers in the interval [0,1]
Let T be the set of all real numbers in the interval (-1,0]

If you applied an operator '+' to these two sets that sums the elements
of both sets, you would get: S + T = 1
-------------------------------------------

You are trying to sum an uncountable set of numbers. Please define what
this means. Also consider: if you pair the numbers differently, can you
make the sum come out to something else?

FInally, I didn't notice anything looking like a proof in your article,
though I admit I haven't read all of it.
