I am just really interested in the science behind this and hope that ideas like this can be funded and be used to do some good."

It's versatile in that it could be used for a wide variety of things. I think it's a great idea for the future in terms of energy and solutions we as a society, can use. "

It seems to be more philisophical and background information where the topic seems to be looking for a more practical solution filled with tips and instructions."
