ok my stuck seatpost

I have an alloy seatpost stuck in a carbon frame. Not worried about losing seatpost but do not want to damage the frame. I have tried WD 40 and silicone spray. Then I took a good size pipe wretch and tried to break it free and even hit it with a hammer to try and get it to budge. No luck the seat post is getting eating up as I turn.

Help! Do I cut the post and then try to crush it in around the end? One thought is to just try to get a little lift at the insertion with a very small mirco screwdriver and use my air gun to blow lube down the tube.

THis forum has been great can you help the old mechanic. I just want to save the frame and now I can get my CF seatpost and a new saddle if it works out.
