Not having read the paper, as soon as it says "hyper-reals" in the
description then we are talking about somewhat different things (if of
the same matters, that constant monotone EF is structurally the CDF of
N regularly/uniformly, here ran(f) instead of hyperreals).

With regards to "Infinite numbers are large finite numbers", haven't
read beyond the abstract, but I wonder if it's a finitist view. (And
I wonder that regular/well-founded "infinities" are a finitist view.)
Then, a casual inspection of some available writings sees that he
actually means "infinite regular/well-founded transfinite ordinals are
only large finite numbers".

Yaroslav Sergeyev is also noted as writing in a similar vein, Yaroslav
writes of the infinity as scalar with "Gross 1", for arithmetic with
infinite ordinals that extends the arithmetic of infinite ordinals of
set theory.
