uhoh, here cometh the Last Digit of Pi  dude *cited* Sokal, hehheh  not the Director's Cut of "Contact".
there is no sufficient reason for you or me to comprhened Wiles' proof, which you can take to be alleged til such time as you might do that; there are probably twomany (at least) proofs of Fermat's "last" theorem, wich appears to be a very early result of his & indicative of his method, perhaps the first use of it, which might even have subsumed "infinite descent" in some sense ... that is, you may as well think about his theorem with other math, or geometry, or what ever, with the possible exception of "probability," since that can never prove any thing (after all, per your example, their are an infinity of 50th powers).
in other words, Well it looks like Fermat could have proved it, and this British guy in a closet has been reported to have in a Famous Math Journal out of New Jersey; maybe there are elementary proofs in between or around them.
NB: Fermat made not even one mistake, that I know of, including his conjecture about the Fermat numbers, but it took a hundred years, aside from F"L"T, to show thatso, what was his mehtod?

thus: how simple of a reference do you want, relating to "really, really tall officebuildings that are hit by a plane filled with fuel for a transontinental flight, bigger than a flock of V2s?..." just guessing, about the V2 equivalence.... do you want it to be in only Selfconsistent Muslim Physics?... the important thing, of course, is that they were offices for the "earned income" folks, hte folks who are bringing you the Protocol of the Elders of Kyoto (sik), whether or not you agree with the tactics, or even on who had used them on us.

thus: note the key phrase, which I hasn't noticed til a day after I posted it, that they actually did have an amendment to *extend* the Godam preclearance rules  how much further, I know not  although it may have been illegal to pass it.
>Of the four amendments defeated in the House, three had the support of a >majority of the chamber's 231 Republicans. Only the suggestion that the >Voting Rights Act be extended to cover other jurisdictions was defeated by >majorities of both Republicans and Democrats.
thus: compression is only & always deployed around tension.
