The feedback was real helpful.

As far I understood are bindings only useful for things like computation
of the eigenvalue etc, but for the basic things like I do, its not helpful.
For me, its not clear, how to use this bindings and were to find it.

I tried to use sparse matrix, but it made it for some reason even slower, so
I discarded it. ANd I guess the vectors are the problem, which are quite full
