Have the drugs damaged your brain to the point where you cannot maintain
attention through a five minute TV-show interview? Do you understand the
statement concerning Ribet's discovery so that Wiles was presented with
another approach he otherwise would not have tried? He worked on this
150 page proof "attempt" for eight years and published a flawed work. He
worked in collaboration with Richard Taylor for an additional year to
remove the "subtle" flaw. The facts are that Wiles proved the Shamura
conjecture, with lots of assistance, which allowed the mathematics to
conclude that Fermat's theorem statement was true through Ribet's work.
This does not sound like a lone act of solitary genius to me. It is not
even accurate to say that Wiles proved Fermat's theorem, he solved the
last piece of the puzzle that was mostly put together by many others
before him. He demonstrates a singularly defective personality that he
should even make this claim, as you can see from the interview which is
all "I...I...I..."- he credits no one but himself with achievement.
