I'm quite impressed with them, technically.  The only suggestions I have
about them are non-technical.

I find that many sentences are too long, without break.  It's a vice I
have myself, as a non-native writer.  Native readers often tell me, this
makes my text too heavy, too hard to parse.  Of course, the primary
target audience (in academia) will have higher tolerance to that, but
it's still somewhat bad style.  I'd sprinkle commas generously, at
least.  Try reading them out loud :-) (the sentences, not the commas)

      So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
       then they seem improbable, and then, when we
       summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
