    The heart of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not work well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one might do nicely to fill in all those gaps. When you can accomplish that, I could certainly be amazed.
