If we use a sphere instead of a ball to perform this paradox then
when we put the two spheres back together they are no longer
spherical. Instead they are comprised of line segments of
infinitesimal length.
Every other geometric point on the number line is taken up by one
sphere or the other. A line segment comprised of three immediately
adjacent geometric points is exactly one infinitesimal unit longer
than a line segment comprised of two immediately adjacent geometric
points.
Says you don't understand the properties of finite sets like the reals.
There are NOT 'immediately adjacent geometric points' in the object,
as it can be shown that between ANY two (different) real numbers (or
even just rational numbers) there exists another number between them,
so no numbers are 'adjacent'
The interval [0,1] is exactly one geometric point longer than the
interval [0,1)
https://www.mathwords.com/i/interval_notation.htm
Non-Sequitur. Doesn't show that there is anything like adjacent points.
The open interval [0,1) has no highest point, as any point you try to
name, has a point higher that is also in the interval.

Yes, because that statement doesn't actually make sense when you look at
it precisly. The problem is infinitity - 1 is the same as infinity.
You FAIL the basic principles of infinite math.

Lebesgue's measures of [0,1] and [0,1) have the same value: 1.

I think the problem is simpler than that. If lengths are to be useful,
one should be able to do arithmetic on them,
and they should be the sort
of quantities that appear in the intervals we are measuring
(i.e. |[0, a]| = a, and for any length l, [0, l] exists).
But then if |[0, 1)| = lx < 1 it all falls apart. For example, what
interval has length (lx+1)/2? Is the set [0, lx] equal to [0,1)? What elements are in [0, 1] \ [0, lx]? PO-lengths have to be special things
with a huge number of ad hoc "axioms" propping them up.
But PO does not care if his idea of length makes sense because its sole
purpose is to reflect the intuitions he had formed by the time he
stopped learning maths. He's never going to write a book on "PO-measure theory", so he can just keep decreeing new facts about PO-lengths to his heart's content. It does not even matter if the result is inconsistent because he rejects what everyone else thinks of as a proof anyway.
(Remember that if {A} ⊦ X, he asserts that {A,¬A} ⊬ X.)

No with any sensible definition of "longer".

It is self evident that the first interval maps to a line segment that

Maybe to someone who doesn't understand the effects of infinite and

It is the same as Cantors proof, every point in the open interval maps
to a point in the closed interval and there is one point left over in
the closed interval.
I think you misunderstand the proof (unless you are thinking of some
other proof of his). Cantor proved that the Reals were uncountable, and
thus the matching arguement doesn't hold for comparing sets.
Note also, even on the countable infinte sets, that doesn't show that
the closed interval is larger.
Take for example the Natural Numbers and the even Natural Numbers.
One mapping shows that we can map half the natural numbers to the evens
and thus seem to show that there are more natural numbers than even
number, but since we can built a map that matchs every natural number
1:1 with the evens, we can show that they must be the same size.
So FAIL again.
