I haven't looked at your paper yet. Are you aware of Jacques Touchard's proof in 1953 that an odd perfect number is either 12k+1 or 36k+9? If not, then the lack of response you have received is probably the result of a perception of unprofessionalism.

Your mistake is page 3 when you say
3  (P^{alpha+1}/(2*(P1))) Take P=13 and alpha=1. Then P^{alpha+1}/(2*(P1)) = (13^21)/(2*(131)) = (13+1)/2 = 7. And 7 is not divisible by 3. This is because in the previous line r = 3*t/w, you missed the case where w is divisible by 3, so that the factor 3 is canceled.
