It is at least interesting to distinguish between irrecoverable

incongruencies and reparable mistakes. The balls and vase problem rather

belongs to the second category (as I have repeatedly tried to show). Then

the relevance is obvious as it affects the actual import of your endeavour.

Most notably: what have you to say that my mathematics is out of standard?
