Not having read the paper, as soon as it says "hyperreals" 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). http://mathforum.org/kb/thread.jspa?forumID=13&threadID=2421715&messageID=7941700#7941700

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/wellfounded "infinities" are a finitist view.) Then, a casual inspection of some available writings sees that he actually means "infinite regular/wellfounded 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.
