ALD defined by using only the ten hundred most used words

A funny Tweet came along today from Angel Yanguas-Gil : #ald defined using the up-goer five editor: http://t.co/e6L2hItJ. The challenge is Can you explain a hard idea using only the ten hundred most used words?

i grow stuff layer by layer using tiny things that fly through the air and that break down when they touch the stuff I am growing. As they break they form a layer until they don't break anymore. But then I use a kind of air that changes my stuff and lets me start all over again and add a second layer. By repeating this many times, I can get to grow thicker stuff. I grow my stuff inside a sort of can that keeps me from breathing the things i use because they could kill me or make me sick. The stuff that I grow can be used to make computers or get power from the sun.
Please do chek out the web page of Angel Yanguas-Gil - it contains amongst other things an equation for ALD:
