What made you want to annotate this paper?

There is a growing demand for learning online these days. From a high school student to a PhD aspirant everybody is learning new things on the internet every day. Hence, I felt the need to reach to students who are trying their best to understand advanced scientific literature by themselves. Annotation is a great way to translate seemingly complex information into simple theories. This is the reason I chose annotation as the medium to encourage everybody to learn science at their own pace.
