Paradoxical Geometrical Result


In his papers trying to give a geometrical proof for Fermat Conjecture, Dr. Keia (*) gave a proof that the 2D Pythagoras theorem:
$$x^2 + y^2 = z ^2$$
generates, by some geometrical transformation, an equality of octahedrons, keeping the same 2D base, i.e. the equation :

$$\frac{\sqrt{2}}{3}x^3 + \frac{\sqrt{2}}{3}y^3 = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{3}z^3$$

Which also means $$x^3 + y^3 = z ^3$$

Which is absurd!

As this cannot be true for most of the (x,y,z) 2d-Pythagorean Integers triple.

If someone has a correction to my understanding, this would be helpful..

Thanks in advance!

$\displaystyle x^3+y^3=z^3$ has infinitely many solutions. Here is one: $\displaystyle x=1$, $\displaystyle y=2$, $\displaystyle z=\sqrt[3]{9}$.

However there are no solutions to this equation over the positive integers. A quick glance at his paper and also looking at his youtube video shows that he never mentions positive integers. My take? He's a crank.
