The very root of your writing whilst sounding reasonable originally, did not really sit properly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do well to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I would certainly be impressed.
