If you have a proof for (2) then someone -- I wish it didn't have to be me but I'm in for a penny in for a pound in this thread -- will have to work through the algebra to find the mistake.

@michaelweir We know there's a mistake because we saw a few days back that no proof based on elementary algebraic manipulations can work. And there's the meta-reason that if there were in fact an elementary algebraic proof, someone would have found it in 350 years.

So there is a mistake in there, and I was hoping (1) or (2) would be false, but if they are both true then somebody needs to dive in. Any volunteers?

the post #2 shows the proof and the final result are wrong

Masche - Thank you for spending the time you have spent on this proof. i THINK YOU WILL BE REWARDED FOR SPENDING THE TIME. I haven't spent the time to rebut the argument to show that proof is outside the parameters of an algebraic manipulation, as is this one.To make the claim that this proof about algebraic applies you will have to label every statement in a proof is an example of a algebraic manipulation. i don't think you can do that.

The Nautilus construction is much more than a way to solve FLT. I have come up with a way to combine the number line analysis of this proof with the Nautilus to come up with another FLT. There are probably other proofs of FLT using the Nautilus. It's like using a fishing net of the ocean of Mathematics, instead of a single fishing line.Who knows what fish will be caught next?.
