Sure. But how does this invalidate Cantor's (or Hessenberg's, if WM is
to be believed) proof? Anyone who accepts P(N) accepts impredicativity
and TND, so the proof goes through just fine. And anyone who doesn't,
does not believe in ZFC, anyway, so this result can't be used for
anything. And of section 2 of the "paper", the less said, the better.

WM seems to think that every impredicative set is automatically
paradoxical, and that is rot.
