Unfortunately, nothing in that note is correct.

It reminds me of the ceremonial every-twenty-years fusion energy furor (non-scientists mos-interpret scientific results).

Not imprecise. It is total rubbish. It shows that this famous powerful mathematician has lost his mental faculties.

This looks like an 89 year-old 9p claiming for the third time he can still win an international tournament and play blitz while his opponent plays slowly.

No, they are not cautious, they are polite.

But yeah, it's sad... and probably hard to manage for everybody involved :cry:

To be skeptically cautious and polite are not mutually exclusive. :)

When I say "they are not cautious, they are polite", I mean that, if it was not Atiyah or another great mathematician past his prime, they would probably say "Is this a joke? That's rubbish, there's nothing of value here" instead of "I'm skeptically cautious".
