There was another thread on the forum recently by the author of that nonsense. It is not a paradox, but a 'miscalculation' to put it kindly.

The author does not write down a Hamiltonian that describes the system. If we do this, instead of following the confusing pseudo-analysis in the link above, we see that the obsfucated contraption goes nowhere.
