Imagine, if you will, a light cell being fed with "magnified" focused 
sunlight.  Ever focus light with a magnifying glass and burn wood or 
paper?  What if.....that cell could take the amplified "focused" 
sunlight and turn it into "super energy"!  if a normal cell could 
turn sunlight into energy how much more could a focused light beam, 
with the right cell(not developed yet) produce?  This technology is 
not developed yet I am assuming and again as with my other question I 
submitted, you would be tempted to say "it couldn't be done" but that 
is the wrong answer!/G
